It’sÂ World Hijab DayÂ everybody, so wrap your heads in freedom gear and party down:
Get with it, gals! What could possibly be more diverse than black shrouds?
Lydia Shelly says the day also encourages Australians to walk in the shoes of a Muslim women with the aim of improving religious harmony.
“The biggest assumption about Muslim women who wear the hijab is that we are one big homogenous group,” Ms Shelly wrote on Facebook. “Muslim women who wear the hijab are from all walks of life, nationalities and have different ways that they express their modesty through their wearing of the hijab.Yay for diversityÂ in the hijabi community!”
Yay for wearing slightly different patterns and colours while maintaining subservience to your male superiors! Here’s how things went during a previous hijab day celebration:
Some 200 veiled women staged a rally in front of the Lahore Press Club on Tuesday to mark World Hijab Day, butÂ only men gave speeches.
