Often the hijab is perceived as this static, monolithic thing. But of course, it’s not that simple – every Muslim woman who chooses to wear, or not to wear the hijab has a different understanding and experience of it, and in these stories we’re going to dig into some of that grey area. In this episode, we hear two women from different parts of the world share their relationships with their hijab.
