World Hijab Day – Feb. 16

Walk a mile in her shoes. Spend a day in solidarity.

A reflection dinner and stories from the community on the complex cultural significance of wearing the Hijab, the head covering worn in public by some Muslim women. By opening up new pathways to understanding, World Hijab Day hopes to counteract some of the controversies surrounding why Muslim women choose to wear the hijab.

To sign up for the dinner or to get a hijab visit the Muslim Life at Elon Facebook page. Hijabs can be picked up at College Coffee on Feb. 14 and Numen Lumen on Feb. 16. Dinner will take place in the McBride Gathering Space at 6 p.m. on Feb. 16.
