It’s funny how Hijabi’s are labelled as oppressed by the Western Societies, when it is the same society that oppresses all women through their particular and artificial image of beauty. Being bombarded with images upon images of the ‘Perfect Arse’ or the ‘Perfect Pout’ through superficial media outlets surely only makes a woman feel inferior and insignificant in comparison to societies idea of beauty. My Hijab makes a statement. Look past my flaws and look into my intellect. Look past my figure and look into my soul. Look past the scarf and look into the person.
I am not oppressed. I am liberated
