Ruby Usman

Ruby was born in the slums of Karachi, Pakistan. She has experienced sexual abuse at the hands of many men as a child; some of them strangers and others, close family members. She grew up as a Muslim woman and experienced violence as an integral part of society and culture. She now writes about these traditions and hopes that by starting these debates, a new face of Islam is revealed. A new Islam with love, compassion and forgiveness for ALL irrespective of their gender, race and colour.

      You are absolutely right Nancy. Sexual abuse changes men as well as women in many different ways. My blogs are coming from my experiences and the experiences of those women who I have come in contact with. Unfortunately, I don’t know of any resources for men. Have you done a google search? have you found anything?
