Spiritual garment, fashion accessory, piece of armor, symbol of empowerment: the hijab is no one thing. We hear from a panel of Muslim women whose writing about hijabs is far beyond the trope of the silent, oppressed veiled woman. These writers are restoring dignity to the hijab and its wearers with a dash of sass.

Pakaian spiritual, aksesoris fesyen, sehelai pelindung tubuh, simbol pemberdayaan: hijab memiliki banyak dimensi. Kita akan mendengar dari sebuah panel wanita Muslim yang tulisannya bercerita mengenai hijab jauh melampaui kiasan wanita berkerudung yang diam dan tertindas. Para penulis ini mengembalikan martabat hijab dan pemakainya dengan cara yang cemerlang.
