Egyptian feminist and blogger, Aliaa Magda Elmahdy has taken to social media to protest the strict nature of Islam. In her words, it is a “society which promotes violence, racism, sexism, harassment and hypocrisy.”
The 23-year old and a veiled woman are seen in the picture menstruating and pooping on a black ISIS flag. Aliaa did not give clarification on why she decided to take this particular photo but her stance against Islamic and sharia laws is strong. It is reported that Arab nations did not print the photo because written on the flag is: “there is no God but Allah.”
Having slaughtered their way across the Middle East, ISIS has taken control of one-third of Iraq; and women have become the target of their increasingly strict rules. They have ordered that women are not allowed to leave the house without a male relative, they must wear full veils, and in the northern city of Mosul, all females are being forced to undergo female genital mutilation.
As for Elmahdy, this is not the first time she has caused outrage. On her Facebook page in 2011 she put photos claiming they “scream against a society of violence, racism, sexism, sexual harassment and hypocrisy.”
