Today is World Hijab Day



My view on the Muslim headscarf, or hijab, is perfectly summed up by this cartoon.


Personally I figure that anyone wearing a hijab will probably encounter plenty of assholes in the course of their week who will glare at them, make unpleasant comments, and generally try to make them miserable: so I always make a point of giving women in hijabs a friendly smile. It seems a small, positive thing I can do to improve their lives, along with simply treating them as normal women (normal Scottish women, moreover).

However, World Hijab Day isn't just about treating women in hijabs as human beings and respecting their right to wear the things if they wish. It is a day when woman who do not habitually wear the hijab don the garment in a display of solidarity with their hijabi sisters. Which as the author of this article observes, is just so much tokenism. I'm not going to discover how it feels to be a Sikh in Britain by wearing a turban for a day.

Oh, and this article makes interesting reading. Especially relevant here is point number 6:

Six: Avoid tokenism and broad generalizations. Sometimes a hijab is just a hijab, and sometimes it is not.



And sometimes, of course, it is a punk hijab. A tartan punk hijab. What?
