Seventy women in Prince George donned Muslim head scarves, most for the first time, as part of a ‘hijab for a Day’ event at the University of Northern B.C., in Prince George this week.
Students from the campus women’s centre presided over a box of colourful scarves, offering women on their way to class a chance to wear a hijab around campus.
“I’m not Muslim, but I just got a hijab put on me by another student,” said Dara Campbell. “There’s a lot of myths and false things that go around about what a hijab means. We should understand other women’s choices.”
