Moroccan Singer Abir El Abed Shaves Head to Send Feminist Message
Rabat – Moroccan singer Abir El Abed posted a photo on Instagram yesterday in which she appears with a shaved head, sending out a message to women about society‘s perception of women. “This is a message from me to every woman and every girl who suffers from a society that imposes fake ideas, that are products of humans,” she wrote. “Today I’m here to show solidarity with every girl who had been lied to one day and told that you are not a woman if you don’t have hair,” she continued. The Moroccan artist dedicated her shaved head to women who have “had to cover their heads with a veil or a wig for being cancer patients, having coarse hair, hair loss issues, and couldn’t accept being bald, for fear of mockery.” View this post on Instagram Aid Moubarak Said .. رسالة مني لكل مرأة أو بنت، كتعاني مع المجتمع لي كيبغي يفرض عليها بعض الأفكار لي هي وهمية و من اختراع البشر و الشعوب .. جيت اليوم نتضامن مع راسي و مع أي بنت كذبو عليها فيوم من الأيام و قالولها بلي إذا ما كانش عندك الشعر أنت ماشي مرا، و شحال من وحدة تعقدات أو دارت الزيف باش تغطي أو باروكا،غير حيت شعرها كيطيح، أو حرش، أو مرضات بالسرطان و ما قدراتش تقبل راسها قرعة حيت الناس غادي يضحكوا عليها .. البنات سمعوني مزيان، سر جمالك هو عقلك، و كيانك، و ذكائك، و مستواك الفكري و أخلاقك، و فلوسك و عملك، و قلبك و نيتك و أهم حاجة ابتسامتك و ثقتك بنفسك .. هادي هي قيمتك، ماشي شعرك، أو جسمك .. خليك قوية رغم كلام الناس لي ما غادي يفيدك فوالو.. من الآن فصاعدا، سمعي لقلبك، و ديري داكشي لي أنت مقتانعة به، مدام ما كيمس الحرية ديال حتى شئ واحد ولا كيخدش الحياء، أما بالنسبة لداك الناس لي غادي يضحكو عليك ما تديهاش فيهم، واش كاين شي إنسان عاقل،واعي و عندو قيمة فالمجتمع،كيعطي رأيه فالناس بلا ما حتى واحد يطلب منه؟؟!!! طبعًا لا، هادوك كلهم ناس حياتهم فارغة عليها كيهتمو بمشاكل و حياة الناس .. آخر كلمة أنت فتاة إذا أنت مركز الكون بشعرك أو بلاش .. #stayathome #aidmoubarak #2020 A post shared by Abir El Abed | عبير العابد (@abirelabedofficial) on May 23, 2020 at 3:01pm PDT “Girls, listen to me carefully, the secret to your beauty lies in your mind, your being, your intelligence, your intellectual level, your manners, your money, your job, your heart, your intentions, but most importantly, your smile and your self-confidence,” she stressed. The Tangier native advised her female fans to ignore those who mock them and always follow their hearts so long as they do not negatively affect the freedom of others. In addition to the post, El Abed changed her profile photo to show off her new look and deconstruct the idea that a woman’s worth and femininity is linked to her hair. In a world where images often travel faster than ideas, El Abed’s compelling message adds to modern feminists‘ efforts in changing mentalities about women’s rights and freedoms by using social media platforms to engage young minds. The 28-year-old Moroccan singer entered the music world through her participation in MBC’s Arabs Got Talent in 2017. El Abed’s singing style draws inspiration from Judeo-Moroccan and Andalusian music. The post Moroccan Singer Abir El Abed Shaves Head to Send Feminist Message appeared first on Morocco World News.
