The following originally appeared on Kerning Cultures under the title ‘Not Just My Hijab’.
Often the hijab is perceived as a static, monolithic thing. Whereas its representation and the stories of the women who choose to wear it are varied in background and complexity.
At Kerning Cultures, we’re always interested in the in-between. In this special 2-part series, Not Just My Hijab, hear the stories of 4 different women from different parts of the world share their relationships with their hijab.
Co-production by Razan Alzayani, Lilly Crown, and Hebah Fisher. Sound design and original composition by Mohamed Khreizat. Special thanks to Dana Ballout and Hakaya Storytelling for the inspiration for this episode.
