Iraqi YouTuber Taiba Al-Ali, a vibrant and energetic young woman, has achieved great success with her entertaining videos in which she talks about her life.

Al-Ali founded her YouTube channel after moving from her homeland, Iraq, to ​​Turkey at the age of 17, in 2017, and she posted videos about her daily life, her independence, her fiancé, makeup, and other things. She looked happy and attracted tens of thousands of subscribers.

Taiba Al-Ali returned to Iraq last January to visit her family and was killed by her father. However, the murder was not considered “premeditated murder” and her father was sentenced to only six months in prison.

Taiba’s killing sparked protests across Iraq over its laws relating to so-called “honour killings”, and the case shed light on how women are treated in a country where conservative customs still prevail.
