Ottawa Hijab Day – Thursday, February 25th, 2016
Here is the invitation: “Better Awareness, Greater Understanding, Peaceful World when non-Muslim women will wear a hijab for all or part of the day to be in solidarity with Muslim women. We walk with our sisters.”
Please do this instead: Do NOT wear a headscarf in “solidarity” with the ideology that most silences us, equating our bodies with “honor.” Stand with us instead with moral courage against the ideology of Islamism that demands we cover our hair.

(Maybe we should all wear kippot that day…Ed.)
