Your Weekly Digest on What Muslim Women Are Talking About

World Hijab Day, the Highs and Lows

by in World on 2nd February, 2018

This week we saw World Hijab Day take place where hundreds of people shared their personal thoughts and experiences. The event takes place in over 140 countries worldwide. Founded by Nazma Khan in 2013 the event is intended to encourage women of all religions and backgrounds to wear and experience the hijab. Whilst many women have taken to celebrate the day, many question the reason and need for a specific day as well as pointing out that wearing a hijab for one day does not equate to understanding the struggles fully.
