If you have 20 minutes to spare today, visit the Daemen's American Association of University Women (AAUW) members at our World Hijab Day Acknowledgement event! The hijab is a type of religious covering worn by many Muslim women across the world. However, covered women -- called hijabis -- face a great deal of social stigma in many countries, especially after the anti-Muslim backlash that followed tragic events of 9/11. World Hijab Day, traditionally on February 1st, is an event meant to promote understanding and acceptance of these covered women. Have you ever wondered why women wear hijab? Or how to put one on? Or what you would look like covered? Pop in to try on a hijab, watch our looping presentation, and have your questions answered! Hijabs are personal property and not for sale but can be signed out to wear around campus for a short period of time if desired. (Please note that this is not an hours-long lecture.)
