World Hijab Day 2018
World Hijab Day (WHD) is celebrated annually on February 1st. On this date, the World Hijab Day Organization asks global citizens of all faiths to experience wearing the Hijab (head-covering) for a day in solidarity with Muslim women worldwide.
"The overall mission of WHD is to create a more peaceful world where global citizens respect each other. The day focuses on fighting bigotry, discrimination, and prejudice against Muslim women. This is most crucial in these times where Hijab is being banned in some countries while in other countries, Muslim women are being targeted and harassed verbally and physically." -http://worldhijabday.com/press-release-2/
