The UBC Free Speech Club is delighted to host Yasmine Mohammed 

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 organization 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 organization 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 organizations 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.

"Yasmine is one of the bravest people of our time. She is a shining example to all of us."
                                                        - Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Yasmine will perform a lecture followed by a Q&A. As usual, anyone who may want to challenge Yasmine is allowed to jump the line. 

This is a more intimate venue so tickets are limited.
