Hello Hijab: Mom Hopes To Create A Better World For Daughter


Safaa Bokhari, a mom living in Oakland, Pennsylvania, has experienced difficulty practicing her Muslim faith, especially while wearing her headscarf. Her goal is to foster a safer environment for her daughter when she becomes old enough to choose whether to wear a headscarf. To do that, she teamed up with a community organization in Pittsburgh to launch Hello Hijab, which creates tiny headscarves that can be used on children’s toys. Bokhari hopes that in doing so she can educate others on how the hijab is a spiritual concept and create a world where seeing women wearing one is more normal and accepted.
