Full Summary: Uncovering the significance of the Muslim woman's headscarf, or Hijah.

Join us for a hands-on-experience uncovering the significance of the Muslim woman’s headscarf or Hijab. Participants will first meet for an interactive segment providing them with information on the headscarf. Topics of why, what, when and how the scarf is worn, the cultural variations in wearing the scarf and the choice of covering or not will be included in this gathering. Following this educational session, female participants will be given a first-hand opportunity to wear the headscarf in public for 2 days while writing about their experiences in a personal journal. We will reconvene to share our experiences, understandings and perceptions. The goal is to identify our learning points of cultural awareness with regards to the Muslim woman’s choice of wearing the headscarf, while also creating an environment for non-Muslims to educate others about the Hijab. RSVP to www.diveristy.gatech.edu.
