Muslim women are speaking out against abuse with #MosqueMeToo

Egyptian journalist and author Mona Eltahawy created the hashtag #MosqueMeToo to share her experience about getting sexually assaulted during Hajj, a five day pilgrimage to Mecca that takes place every year. Eltahawy wanted to follow the footsteps of Tarana Burke, and create an intersectional platform where all types of women can speak out against their abusers. “We are putting men on notice that we are done.”
