The girls in small towns( Okay big towns as well, I am a small towner, I always think with that frame of mind 🙂 ) have grown up with the idea of a free woman as being portrayed on media.Now after becoming that free woman which includes having a job , monthly paychecks and our independence too and as we go up the ladder of our lives ,we are discovering our roots, our essentials and things that we need to do as muslim women, many girls are now choosing Hijab as their choice.
There is always a misconception about muslim women regarding their freedom, The women of world is one side, and the muslim women on other side. They are seen as backward,’oppressed’ and uneducated. People around you are surprised to see you working or studying whether you wear a Hijab or not?, they sometimes ask questions as if you are coming from a cave just because you are muslim.
We are living in society where people are educated, working, they have their opinions about life and world. They even voice their support and express solidarity with beliefs they do not conform with but the perception about women in Hijab is still not changing .
I wish to live in a world where they actually believe in what they say, about women equality ,respect of choice and decision.
Well right now I think I live in a world where even women look down upon another women whether it is for her beauty,skin color or something on her head 😉
