Women and Islam, Hijab for a Day

February 1, 2018 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Nazareth MSA invites the campus community to consider women's experiences and women's rights in Islam. Through this event, we hope to provide the opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to gain first-hand experience with the hijab (head scarf) as we explain the purpose, responsibilities, and expectations associated with it.

Please join us in wearing a hijab on Thursday, February 1st, and then for a reflection and pizza at 4:00PM in the Sulam Center, located in George Hall across from Colies. 

MSA leaders will be lending hijabs to female students, faculty and staff who are interested in participating in this experience. Distribution will be from 9:00AM to 12:00PM near the info desk in Shults. You can bring your own scarf and learn how to wear it as a hijab - or you can choose from a variety of hijabs that MSA will loan out for the day (while supplies last)!

If you would like to be on the MSA list or if you have any questions, please feel free to email Sophia Qureshi (squresh0@mail.naz.edu) or Bibi Amin (bamin4@mail.naz.edu).
