The hijab is not what it is, it is portable seclusion and it empowers women. It is the freedom sack after all:
“The hijab does not symbolize suppression, oppression, or silence. Rather, it is a guard against degrading remarks, unwanted advances, and unfair discrimination,” one pamphlet, titled “misconceptions about Islam,”reads.
The suffragettes fought for true female equality by securing the right to vote for women. Today, the priorities for feminist “activists” are very different.
Fictional issues like “manspreading” by men on the subway or the wage gap mythtake precedence over real female oppression. Nowhere is female oppression more prevalent than in Islam, the largest human rights violator of women worldwide.
However, a recent event at a university in Florida held an event attempting to whitewash the harmful ideology of Islam in a drastic way.
[T]he University of Miami recently hosted a “hijab-a-thon” as part of Islam Awareness Week. Organizers of the event encouraged fellow students to try on and wear hijabs around campus.
The Muslim Student group displayed headscarves on a table set up outside of the university center and passed out literature pushing back on the reality that many Islamic cultures are among the most oppressive in the world for women.
“The hijab does not symbolize suppression, oppression, or silence. Rather, it is a guard against degrading remarks, unwanted advances, and unfair discrimination,” one pamphlet, titled “misconceptions about Islam,” reads.
This video explains perfectly why the left should be fighting for oppressed Muslim women—but isn’t.
When one student decided to stage a counter-protest, the university went out of its way to defend the hijab-a-thon, stating that the University of Miami, “supports the upcoming Islam Awareness Week,” and that they were, “disappointed to learn” that some students were taking offense to the event.

Here’s the competition: #NOHIJABDAY
#NoHijabDay campaign fights against Sharia propaganda, stands for women who are brutalized for not wearing hijab
This is a most welcome and much-needed initiative. The women who indulge in virtue signalling every year by donning a hijab on World Hijab Day have never shown any concern for the victims of the enforced hijab.
The country with one of the worst human rights records in history, where women are oppressed, which still enforces the death penalty, carries out public executions and has even been known to crucify people – yes, literally – is about to make judgement on New Zealand’s human rights record.
Yes. You read that right. No. It is not April 1st. ?
In the ‘Islamic Republic of Iran’ people are killed for being homosexual. After all, this is what the Koran tells observant Muslims to do. Will our LGBTIQP StormTroopers and the lunatic left organise a protest and call the mullahs homophobic?
No. These moonbats will rather slander us as ‘islamophobic’ for pointing out what Islam does to people.
WTF is “controversial” about that?
The former Labor leader, who joined up with right wing One Nation in November last year, argued that voters in NSW had become ‘very worried’ about the issue and that it was time to follow the lead of nearly a dozen countries worldwide who have banned full face veils.
