Are attitudes on Muslim women shifting?

“According to American Beauty” it is a new and latest series of fashion in which Yahoo Lifestyle proceeds a fundamental cross-country excursion to notice what is actual mean by beauty? — reimagining under the flag of American through the various group of faces that apply make up in the United States of America. For our first survey, we’re mainly focusing on women who are Muslim-American, emphasizing and understand what is making this Muslim group unique as compare other while showing the common threads that bring us together.

We notice that Hijabis, most of Muslim women cover their hair by wearing hijab, it is knowns the hottest product in the beauty industry and fashion in American right now. In 2016, Colorado native Nura Afia, 26, made features when CoverGirl made her a representative. She was the first Muslim woman who was wearing a headscarf to stop the void of symbol in makeup commercials. In the same year, Halima Aden, she is a 20-year-old Somali-American from Minnesota, made a dramatic history when she contested in the Miss Minnesota USA Pageant. The experience pushed her to New York Fashion Week to model for Kanye West‘s Yeezy Season 5, in 2017 campaign for American Eagle, and, this year past July, Aden was the first hijab-wearing model on the cover of Teen Vogue.

For around, these trailblazing in young females are challenging the conventional image of fraught, covert Muslim women that so habitually controls mainstream coverage. “I was born and raised in Oklahoma,” says Hoda Katebi, 23, she is a political fashion writer at JooJoo Azad, and it would have been truly lovely to be able to exposed up a magazine and see someone wearing a hijab, rather it is not first time that I see Muslims embodied would be playing terrorists in movies or on television.”

Fact: But not every Muslim woman wears a headscarf.

The hijab residues a scandalous topic among Muslims ladies theses day. But sometimes, it can be worn as a religious purpose to dress up self-effacingly, it is a symbol of anti-colonial confrontation, a women’s rights statement, and some choose to wear it as protection against sexual harassment. But it is clear not every Muslim woman wears a headscarf all over the world.
