As an outspoken feminist, I really had strong opinions about wearing a hijab. I felt like it was oppressive. I felt like women lost their identity when wearing a hijab. I was clearly wrong. I truly was ill educated in this matter until a very special person explained the beauty behind the hijab recently.
I learned that wearing a hijab does give you an identity. It gives you a voice. It demands that people respect you for your mind and not your body. I feel free and strong today as I wear this. As women, we choose to wear the hijab and I am so inspired by all of you ladies. Sending tons of love and light to each one of you.
