About

 
 

MY NAME IS FATIMA BOCOUM. I AM THE FOUNDER AT OPENLETR AND, SADLY, A SEXUAL ABUSE SURVIVOR. IN JANUARY 2018, I LAUNCHED OPENLETR WITH THE GOAL TO BREAK SOCIETAL AND CULTURAL BOUNDARIES TO EMPOWER WOMEN TO STAND UP, SPEAK OUT, AND MAKE BETTER DAILY CHOICES.

OPENLETR IS UNABASHEDLY FEMINIST. WE TELL STORIES OF WOMEN TO CHANGE THE STIGMA AROUND NOTIONS THAT HAVE IMPACTED PERCEPTIONS OF THE SELF AND OTHERS. AND EVERYTHING WE WRITE ON, FROM BEAUTY, ARTS, AND CULTURE TO FEMINIST NEWS AND GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE, IS MEANT TO HELP OUR READERS VIEW THE WORLD DIFFERENTLY.

WE BELIEVE IN HAVING A STANCE, AND FOR US, THAT IS BEING ACTORS OF CHANGE TO AMPLIFY EQUAL RIGHTS FOR WOMEN, DIVERSITY, AND INCLUSION, TO FREE WOMEN SO THEY CAN PURSUE THEIR DEEPEST ASPIRATIONS.

OPENLETR IS A COMMITMENT TO A BETTER WORLD, WHERE SOCIETAL AND CULTURAL FRONTIERS ARE ERASED TO ALLOW THE WILDEST IMAGINATIONS TO IMPRINT ON THE MOST GENUINE CANVASES BECAUSE EVERY WOMAN IS ENTITLED TO BE.

IN COMMUNITY,

FATIMA BOCOUM
