About my project:
Mapping the historical and cultural from the inside ethnographic, and outside perspectives of the Muslim Women’s Dress and understanding the Niqab. Shifting perspectives and even behaviour around the readings of the Niqab. Also, to bring awareness to the hostility towards Muslim women living in London and transforming the prejudice of the woman wearing the Niqab, in order to bring acceptance and empowerment to Muslim women who choose to wear the Islamic dress. Moreover, to bring equality for women practising the religion of Islam through the religious dress and educating their identity to a target audience of young adults.
