‘Not your habibti’: Palestinian designer seeks to empower women

Palestinian fashion designer Yasmeen Mjalli speaks while standing in her clothing shop where her label collection “BabyFist” carrying anti-sexual harassment slogans is showcased, in Ramallah in the occupied West Bank on December 19, 2018.

It’s only three words on a T-shirt or embroidered on a denim jacket in Palestinian designer Yasmeen Mjalli’s collection, but they carry a powerful message: “Not your habibti”, or darling.

She sees the clothes as helping empower Palestinian women facing unwelcome male attention in public.
