Reservations against hijabis

March 1, 2019



These recent days have been filled with disruptive news regarding two women who wear the Islamic headscarf (hijab) and their images in public spaces. One of the images is a photo of a woman wearing a hijab that the workers union “Unionen” chose to publish, and the other one is about Suzan Hindi, a woman living in the city of Gävle. Her photo is shown on a large poster at the entrance to the city. Unfortunately, it has been vandalized by xenophobic individuals. In a try to include minorities, in this case Muslims, there have been some people that have shown their position against the publications of a female wearing a hijab. This is something that hinders integration that is important for people with immigrant background and especially women wearing the hijab.
