THE POWER OF THE HIJAB
I did a photo narration project for the Cronkite School about Muslim-American students at ASU called “The Power of the Hijab.” The purpose of the project was to give Muslim women a voice to challenge stereotypes and misconceptions surrounding their religion and more specifically, their hijabs or headscarves. Often times, people make the claim or assumption that Muslim women wear their hijabs because they are forced to or because their religion oppresses them. Watch and listen as Mariam Fayad, Fara Arefi and Wasiba Rahman talk about why they feel empowered through wearing their hijabs.
