World Hijab Day Takes On Renewed Significance In The Age Of Trump
Mona Eltahawy, a Muslim Egyptian-American who wrote the book Headscarves & Hymens, says she doesn't support the poster, as she fought for eight years to be free to stop wearing the hijab. "It represents my personal relationship with God".
"It feels a little weird having something under my chin but it's pretty comfortable", said Kate Conway, 19, a sophomore who tried on a white, pink and blue hijab. "Is it people who are trying to hurt me or trying to say something bad to me?'" said Silva who lives in Garden Grove. "The outpouring of support that we have received has restored our faith in the good that emerges from evil".
Organizers said the event was planned weeks before President Donald Trump signed an executive order temporarily restricting travel from certain Muslim-majority countries. The Trump administration has said the order is not a ban on Muslims and is needed to safeguard the country, while critics contend it does not enhance already stringent vetting and plunged worldwide travel into chaos. She said she did not have an elaborate reason for wearing it but that it was part of an evolution for her."For me, it's part of who I am more than anything", she said. "We thank you sisters and brothers", she said. "They feel more oppressed when you are trying to tell them to take it off", Casaretto said.
