Not Just My Hijab: Stories from around the World

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.
