The Hijab Posts

In 2014, I wore Hijab for a week in solidarity with women in my area who had been attacked for, essentially, looking too Muslim.  It was a highly educational experience on a lot of levels, though I’m aware that I was fortunate in being surrounded by people who were largely supportive.  This page is an index of the posts I wrote that week, mostly for my own use, since I occasionally want to refer back to them and then have to go looking for them.  Also, since they are a series of related essays, I thought it would be worthwhile to put them together.
