Facebook Page for Dutch Turkish Woman Removing Hijab

Radio Netherlands Worldwide provides an update on a recent profile of a Dutch – Turkish woman who has removed her hijab. Semra Celebi created a facebook page entitled “I took off my hijab” which entailed a huge response from international readers. Celebi has faced criticism on the page but will continue to maintain it, as a means of supporting other women in a similar position. The page, however, is not meant to encourage others to follow her example, as Celebi feels each woman should make her own decision with respect to the hijab.
