Stanford Event: A Day in the Life of a Hijabi (Jan 15-16)


“A Day in the Life of a Hijabi” is an annual campus-wide challenge that encourages Stanford students to explore the Muslim woman’s choice and decision to wear the hijab, or Islamic headscarf, while upholding her right to choose her form of dress and self-expression. This day of activism challenges Stanford females to wear a scarf around their head in solidarity with the right of women to choose, as an opportunity to explore a culture that many times is portrayed as “foreign,” and to make a stance against the rising number of discrimination and employment cases in which women who wear the hijab are prevented from applying for certain jobs within the United States.

Hoodies and Hijabs Rally for Trayvon Martin and Shaima Alawadi at Stanford on Tuesday April 17




Stanford students stood together wearing hoodies and hijabs on Tuesday April 17th's rally to protest the stereotypes and discrimination present in our society by focusing in on two recent cases. On February 26th, 2012, 17 year old Trayvon Martin was walking back from a convenience store to his father's home when he was shot and killed by a "community watchman", George Zimmerman. On March 21st, 32 year old Shaima Alawadi was found beaten in her El Cajon home with a note next to her saying, "Go back to your country, you terrorist." Shaima passed away three days later.

Here are some pictures from the event:

It's not what's ON your head; it's what's IN your head"
December 1-2, 2011 saw two important events at Stanford.  The first was World AIDS Day which is celebrated on December 1 each year around the world and has become one of the most recognised international health days and a key opportunity to raise awareness, commemorate those who have passed on, and celebrate victories such as increased access to treatment and prevention services. (see pics below).

The second event was titled “A Day in the Life of a Hijabi," (see pics below) which a campus-wide challenge that encourages Stanford students to explore a Muslim woman’s choice and decision to wear the hijab, or Islamic headscarf, while upholding her right to choose her form of dress and self-expression.  This day of activism challenges Stanford females to wear a scarf around their head in solidarity with the right of women to choose, as an opportunity to explore a culture that many times is portrayed as “foreign,” and to make a stance against the rising number of discrimination and employment cases in which women who wear the hijab are prevented from applying for certain jobs within the United States. The dayalso incorporates the support of Stanford males by providing them with a free pink t-shirt (with the slogan “It’s about what’s in your head, not on it”) and asking them to wear said shirt on the awareness day in increased solidarity.
