Muhammad Ali Shahidy

About Me: 

A male feminist who has very recently become a women's rights advocate - that was a huge transformation I have undergone in my life.I co-founded the Psycho-social Development and Support Organization based in Afghanistan. Other than the psychological support and activities, we have dedicated a huge portion of our focus on activism.
I believe men play a very crucial role in elimination of violence against women. And their engagement can be achieved immensely through the public awareness - spreading the words, speaking out, and letting them know what women experience.

My Passions: 
A quality education
My Challenges: 
Poverty, Religious Fundamentalism, Insecurity..
My Vision for the Future: 
A College Professor and Social Activist
My Areas of Expertise: 
Psychology & Independent Advocacy
My Languages: 
Persian, English
