by Lina Khalifeh


In 2004, Lina Khalifeh, a young Jordanian woman with a championship background in Taekwondo, had a chance encounter with a fellow college student that initiated a worldwide movement. SheFighter, the first self-defense studio exclusively for women in the Middle East, came to life after Lina talked to "Sara" who had been physically abused by her father and brother. Starting from nothing - and on a shoestring budget - Lina has built SheFighter into an internationally-known organization dedicated to increasing women's safety and self-image. Honored around the world for her innovation and courage, Lina remains passionate about her work and about empowering women and girls, especially in her home region. She invites you to read her inspiring story: SheFighter - From Trouble Maker to Global Change Maker.

I loved Lina's book, her honesty, her success, her message.

I LOVE this book and will be gifting it to many people. This is the journey of a girl in Jordan all the way to a worldwide stage for establishing an international self defense school for women.

This is my favorite book and the most amazing book I've ever read.. ❤️ I really loved every single word of it. Everyone should read it to learn how to believe in yourself, never give up on your dreams and to be strong and true to yourself..

Lina was vulnerable in providing insight from some of the hardest moments in her life. She showed passion, dedication, and the will to take on the people who thought women didn't belong. If you want to read about a true fighting spirit, getting inspired in the process, then this book needs to be on your list!

Thank you for never giving up and giving our sisters a voice and a fighting chance in a world built to keep us down.

From being bullied as a child to being called out in recognition by President Obama, Lina’s childhood ultimately formed her entrepreneurial journey and her inspiring telling of it leaves you walking away with greater goals for yourself .

Amazing story of personal resilience and perseverance.

The humility in this life story is amazing, in tandem with confidence and determination. Lina speaks of realities that we need to hear, of discrimination, sexism, injustice and corruption that triumph when we are idle and silent. Lina empowers young women, mothers, grandmothers, sisters and daughters - and men - to value each unique person as precious and sacred, strong and deserving.

Lina shares her personal & professional challenges that made her the warrior of today! I love how open she was to share how she was bullied because she was different and how she never gave up on what she believed it was right and on her dreams!

Great read! I started reading the book and couldn’t put it down until I finished it! A story of believing in oneself and perseverance! Would highly recommend this book for those who need inspiration in their lives, whether it’s inspiration for school, work or lifestyle!! Keep inspiring us Lina (Shefighter!)

This book is so insiring - Lina’s personal story makes you feel all the emotions - anger, sadness, happiness and then leaves you understanding that we all have power within us.

An inspirational and immersive read that demonstrates what it takes to be a true leader. Through facing intense childhood struggles, powering through the political and cultural roadblocks that can silence you, and cultivating an unerring belief in the truth and integrity of a powerful idea - Khalifeh’s memoir will motivate you to brave a hostile world and meet your own amazing vision of yourself and the beautiful things you can do..
