Canadian human rights activist, Yasmine Mohammed, advocates for the rights of women living within Islamic majority countries, as well as those who struggle under religious fundamentalism. She is also the founder of Free Hearts Free Minds, an organisation that provides psychological support for ex-Muslims living within Muslim majority countries- where the state sanctioned punishment for leaving Islam is death. 

Yasmine is a member of the prestigious Center for Inquiry (CFI) Speaker’s Bureau. She is also on the Board of Advisors for The Brighter Brains Institute, an organisation that builds secular schools. She has spoken in Canadian parliament on M103 and ‘Islamophobia’ and has been featured in national publications such as: US News The National PostThe Daily Mail, and The Mirror

She has been invited to speak in Ivy League universities and world-renowned venues for many organisations including: The Freedom From Religion Foundation, Ayaan Hirsi Ali Foundation, Ayn Rand Institute, and Think Inc. 

Yasmine is currently in the process of writing her memoir; recalling her experiences growing up in a fundamentalist Islamic household, her arranged marriage to a member of Al-Qaeda, and shedding light on the religious trauma that so many women still today are unable to discuss.

I’ve been hating hijab since it was put on me at 9 yrs old

I spent yrs ruminating, trying to find a loophole that could set me free. Then, at 19, I was put in niqab

I’ve now been #FreeFromHijab for 15 yrs—and I support all women who also want to be free

Covering a woman in a death shroud while shes still alive is the most effective way to dehumanize her and diminish her into nothing

Is that who you are @Plaid_Cymru? The party of celebrating the dehumanization of women?

Good luck w your campaign

Believing that the niqab is dehumanising and has no place in a modern liberal democracy is not “Islamaphobic”.
There are young women in Iran right now being jailed for daring to remove the veil. Yet you endorse their repression. Shameful. https://twitter.com/plaid_cymru/status/1195715563114381312

@RickyThomasblog @YasMohammedxx @Plaid_Cymru I watched it a few days ago. It's a tragedy for women that this isn't seen as the symbol of oppression it is. Must be annoying being in one of the countries its enforced and looking at this.

@YasMohammedxx These "men" are just unhappy because they're losing their control over woman. And I say more power to these woman. You're an inspiration.

Then how do you explain the statistic that 99.3% of women in Egypt report being sexually harassed...despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of women in Egypt wear hijab?

It’s not about her clothes; it’s about his mind.

So happy to have finally recorded a podcast with @YasMohammedxx:

@Bill_the_Bear @dweldredge @oraubergine @YasMohammedxx @Plaid_Cymru 😂 have fun with those "human rights activists/freedom fighters". Thanks UK gov for talking in our trash 👍

@a8bitcoin @YasMohammedxx @tom__1986 @Plaid_Cymru @SaharAlFaifi The niqab is a dehumanising tool of oppression for millions worldwide who are taught to obey or burn in hell for eternity. Many cannot help but be indoctrinated. Many disbelieve but cannot escape alive. How do you think they feel when we approve & promote this tool of oppression?

Drawing progress of one of my heroes - @YasMohammedxx
Looking forward to reading her book ‘unveiled’

Oh? Like you, Abdullah? Do you wear hijab or are you a dehumanized animal?

Got my copy off Amazon today. About to start reading it. Thank you @YasMohammedxx

@YasMohammedxx
I'm only on page 9, and I've already been brought to tears. 😥
#Unveiled

@Doctor13511 @YasMohammedxx @Plaid_Cymru A paramedic I knew attended a Muslim woman who had gone into cardiac arrest. Husband only wanted female paramedics and tried to stop male paramedics doing their job. "If God had wanted her to love he would have sent women" was his answer.

@YasMohammedxx @Plaid_Cymru Had a niqabi come in overnight with gingival bleeding. Severe anemia. Wanted only female providers. Husband spoke for her. Woman would have rather died than receive care from the only physicians in house. What insanity.
