Hijabs for Life in Canada

CAIRO – Spurred by the ban of hijab-clad girls from taking part in sports competitions, Canadian Muslim Abeer Al-Azzawi is helping her fellow Muslim peers play, work and live with a new hijab fit for everyday life, reported the Ottawa Citizen on Saturday, January 26. “You see stores that cater to all kinds of girls — to rocker girls, girlie girls, sporty girls — but there’s nothing for the hijabi girls,” said Azzawi. “If I can do something to change that, I will.” The 24-year-old engineering grad has established an online company for making hijabs that suit Muslim sports girls.
