Virtual Event: Celebrating Women’s Day and International Hijab Day
March 8, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFREE
In celebration of both Women’s Day and International Hijab Day, which was on February 1st, the DeKalb Public Library will present a virtual, educational event highlighting the importance of the hijab for Muslim women.
This event will include interviews, live and recorded, with Muslim women from various backgrounds, a presentation on the history of the hijab and the achievements of Muslim women, a tutorial on how to wear the hijab, and a question and answer session with the panelist.
The hijab is often seen as a sign of oppression. Through this event we hope to create understanding, erase misconceptions, and develop mutual respect for one another.
