Mariam is one of the founding members of Operation Anti-Sexual Harassment/Assault (OpAntiSH), a group that is combatting the growing problem of sexual harassment and collective sexual assaults/rapes against women during protests. The group patrols the streets during protests and fights off men as they attempt to encircle and assault women. The group also provides legal and medical support and follow-up care to girls and women after the assaults.
