Özlem Cekic was born to Kurdish parents in Turkey. When she was a child, she and her family moved to Denmark. In 2007, she challenged the status quo by becoming one of the first minority women to be elected to the Danish Parliament. Her inbox soon filled with sexist and racist insults that had little to do with her politics and everything to do with her background. Cekic’s initial reaction was simply to ignore the emails, but she began charting an altogether more courageous course. Her story will prove inspiring to anyone who has faced criticism online.
