"In December, Mjalli brought the series to Bard College in Abu Dis, Palestine. In a blog post, she said that she 'collected the most intimate and difficult stories of Not Your Habibti' there. As Mjalli recounted, for many of the girls who shared their stories, 'For the first time, it wasn’t a matter of religion, honor, or respectability to share a story—it was now a matter of the freedom to move about the world safely and confidently'" (para 8).

"This process of 'building a family of support' is where her initiative truly shines. Through socially-engaged projects, Not Your Habibti offers an opportunity for public discourse. In one series featured on her blog, Mjalli sat outside the Clock Tower in Ramallah, offering to listen and catalogue women’s stories of sexual harassment...'Some women told me they had never been sexually harassed. Others told me it only happened in other parts of the world,' she wrote in a blog post (para 6, 7).

For Yasmeen Mjalli, 'habibti' took on a different meaning when she moved to Palestine in 2016, where she was confronted by a surprising level of street harassment. 'When I step out into the streets in Palestine, I am bombarded with lewd comments,' she said" (para 1).

"The twenty-one-year-old activist has reclaimed 'habibti,' in order to take a stand against street harassment, and created statement denim pieces, emblazoned with the words 'Not Your Habibti.' 'When I wear my Not Your Habibti, I feel invincible,' Mjalli said in the AJ+ video" (para 2). "Journalists have been quick to see the initiative through the lens of #MeToo, calling Mjalli the 'driving force' behind the Middle East’s 'Me Too' movement. It is worth noting, however, that Mjalli spearheaded the initiative before the news of Harvey Weinstein broke, and that her work challenges the implication that feminism is not indigenous to the Middle East" (para 4).
