Women and the hijab: Dispelling the stereotypes

Wow, what a great post about showing the truths about Muslim women (as opposed to strengthening stereotypes) and hijabs. This post is via “A Broad’s View,” and I found it via “Aisha’s Oasis.”

  1. Christy!
    I left this comment on the post & I leave it here for you as well.

    I find this an interesting article. I was the Costume Designer (76 episodes) on a TV series “Little Mosque On The Prairie” The creator, Zarqa Nawaz, was my first Muslim friend. She is a/ the woman you speak of, and she has written a new book…. “Laughing All The Way To The Mosque”

    I hope you will check her out!

  2. That article is deserving of the further dissemination that you have granted it Christy and I can think of a few letterboxes I’d like to stuff it into as well. I imagine that to wear the hijab invokes a cultural pride similar to what this Irishman feels on donning his Donegal Tweed flat cap.
