“Ask Me About My Hijab promotes communication between Muslim women wearing hijabs and non-Muslims, with the goal of increasing understanding and tolerance.”

Thesis Paper: (PDF)


The hijab is being misrepresented to the American mainstream, causing negative social attitudes and perceptions towards the women who choose to wear it. Ask Me About My Hijab is a tool that invites open conversations between women wearing hijabs and non-Muslims, giving them a chance to share their perspectives and reclaim the image of hijab today.
