On January, 15h, two students from the University of Westminster came together to deconstruct some myths about Muslim women. The myth that recently has been on the spotlight is that hijab oppresses women, and hence, should be banned.
To Hind, from Palestine, and Rehan, from Libya, hijab is the symbol of their religion, and they decided to wear it. No, nobody forced them to do it.
The whole discussion you can watch here. Watch it, learn, and share this message with your friend! Help us deconstructing the myths that lead to intolerance.
