Cover Girl

There's an interesting article on by writer, Krista Bremer, an American woman whose husband is from Libya. She writes about her daughter's choice to wear hijab. 

You can find the article here: Cover Girl

Krista is the winner of a 2008 Pushcart Prize and a 2009 Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers' Award. She is associate publisher of the literary magazine The Sun, and she is writing a memoir about her bicultural marriage.


  1. i liked the article... though I still think the girl is too young to be covered...

  2. I loved the article, thanks. I can relate, as my 2 and a half year old HAS to wear one when we go out. I wish she wouldn`t, but when I try to convince her not to wear it out in public, her responce is always `like mama`. What can I say!
    I commend the girl in the article. She is still exploring things, but mashallah she is headstrong, and obviously very self-confident.

  3. As a western woman married to a Libyan man I would hate to see my daughter cover and be subjected to discrimination. Let's be honest our society is too prejudiced no matter what they say about multiculturalism or all the diversity/tolerance PC.
