Four Brave Women Break The Silence

After years of crushing silence, four Muslim-American women are opening up about the sexual abuse they’ve suffered at the hands of someone they trusted.

The women are featured in filmmaker Nadya Ali’s upcoming documentary “Breaking Silence,” talking for the first time on camera about the painful childhood experiences they’ve kept hidden for years.“I stayed silent for 16 years and it’s very simple why I didn’t talk about it,” said one survivor. “Because we don’t talk about sex in a Muslim, desi household. And if they do, it’s always ‘Don’t have sex. This is haram.’”
