World Hijab Day 2018
Date: 11:30am - 12:30pm PST February 1 Location: Thayer, Templeton
World Hijab Day (WHD) is an annual event in its sixth year. On February 1st of every year, World Hijab Day Organization asks global citizens of all faiths to wear the Hijab (head-covering) for a day in solidarity with Muslim women worldwide. The overall mission of WHD is to create a more peaceful world where global citizens respect each other. Particularly, WHD focuses on fighting bigotry, discrimination, and prejudice against Muslim women. This is most crucial in these times where Hijab is being banned in some countries while in other countries, Muslim women are being targeted and harassed verbally and physically.
At Lewis and Clark, we will hold a space to show an LC student film, “The Politicization of Hijab” as well as have a conversation with some LC students who choose to wear the hijab. All are welcome.
