Its the world Hijaab day.
How and why and what about it is here in a blog I wrote last year.
But over the year here are two interesting point of views that i came across.
“What is it about Islam, I thought, that can make a woman so strong that she no longer strives to be noticed by men, no longer needs the admiring gaze to feel attractive, no longer puts herself on display when the rest of the world is doing just that?”
― Na’ima B. Robert, From My Sisters’ L
“The ultimate decision [of wearing hijab] must be that of the individual. Western opinions on the hijab or burkas are rather irrelevant. We don’t get to decide for Muslim women what does or does not oppress them, no matter how highly we think of ourselves.”
