Banat Akhir Zaman
Shou ya3ni banat akhir zaman?
You probably have heard this phrase before-- maybe someone has referred to you as one of 'banat akhir zaman', and it wasn't exactly meant as a compliment. Banat akhir zaman, or "the girls of the last times," are supposedly so different from the generations of women before us, so much more unruly and rebellious, or so we are told. The fact is, if your elders don't understand your way of life and don't like the way you dress, your attitude, the way you think and the way you behave, they will probably call you a bint akhir zaman.
So, we've decided that since we're not ashamed of who we are and what we believe in, we are going to reclaim that label and turn it into an empowering name for all of us who are working, in whatever way we can, towards the personal liberation of women and the end of all discrimination against them, and therefore towards the general betterment of society. Banat Akhir Zaman are all you girls and women who feel different, who defy the traditional mindsets and ways of behaving that society has assigned you, and who are working, or who want to work, towards making a positive change in the world.
