Since 2013, the International Hijab Day is organised. This year’s campaign targets everyone who uses social media.
Through the hashtag #FreeInHijab, the movement will show the world that no woman is oppressed or imprisoned in her veil, but that it is a choice of free will, the founder Nazma Khan explains.
Khan therefore urges all women, regardless of religious affiliation, background and ethnicity, to wear veils for 24 hours on 1 February to show solidarity with all Muslims.
According to the movement’s Facebook page, the day is also about introducing women to wearing a veil.
On Twitter they write that it is now time for “a flood in social media with the hashtag #FreeInHijab”. According to the post, the campaign will “educate” those who label hijab as a symbol of oppression.

Sure as soon as a cathedral is put up in Saudi Arabias Capitol, and they stop murdering christians.
Is there an “International Say Hello To A Random Male Without Getting Stoned To Death Day” as well? No, of course not. That would be absurd. What was I thinking?
In the 60’s women dumped their bras.
In the 2000’s women insisted that what they wore (slutty or nice) had nothing to do with sexual assault.
In the 20teens women insisted on putting their most private parts on public display as hats and outfits.
Now, they are going to put themselves under the veil?
Hard to buy.
Even Muslim women didn’t do that until the Iranian revolution forced every sexy strand of female hair under wraps!
And that was 1979-80.
