(by Kelly McDonald, Jr) A new hijab fashion accessory was recently created for barbies. A hijab is the head scarf worn by Muslim women. The creators of the fashion accessory, two Pennsylvania women, say that they wish to teach ‘inclusiveness’ and ‘acceptance’.
One of the mothers is quoted as saying that she wants her children “to know that the whole world is different”. Interestingly enough, this mother is the spouse of a 2016 Democratic primary candidate for the state’s senate. Earlier this year, the Democratic Party nearly chose someone who is Muslim to be its chairman. Unfortunately, so many people fail to realize that the Muslim hijab is a symbol of domination and mistreatment of women, which is prevalent in Saudi Arabia.
