Using her body as a demonstration against war and violence, Raha Rastifard's images are a call for action for Muslim women across the world to realize their influence to bring about change and peace to society.
I have faith in equity, and I trust in a world without violence. Now, Muslim women have power for change in the world; they know more of their power and their rights. They struggle for an equal life in the world, and fight against violence and war in the world, and lend their voice for peace. Many Muslim women in the Middle East live in war, and in spite of that, try to give their children hope for a world.
This current photography work was included in Stockholm Photography Week in the Fotografiska Museum and was well received. As a Muslim woman, I have symbolized and used my body here as a function against violence and war, and I wanted to show Muslim women as an important part in society.
