TW: This podcast includes discussions of domestic violence, abuse, murder, grief and loss. Please listen at your own discretion.
Amani Haydar is an incredible human – a former lawyer turned renowned artist, advocate and author of her powerful memoir, The Mother Wound. While losing a parent is always difficult, Amani had her mother, Salwa, taken from her brutally, murdered by her father. At the time Amani was 5 months pregnant and suddenly found herself supporting her siblings while navigating an unimaginable time of grief. Amani shares her story in The Mother Wound with grace and raw honesty. It is both gripping and devastating. Amani now advocates for others facing the devastating effects of domestic violence while she navigates the daily reality of grief, and her book is a powerful must-read true story. It was an absolute honour to chat with Amani.
