A message from The Actress “Newsha Modabber” At the time of removing the hijab
While specific dress codes are illustrated for both men and women to maintain that modesty, the term hijab has become synonymous with the headscarf worn by Muslim women. Some scholars have said that the Arabic word hijab means “partition” or “barrier”. It pertains to not only how men and women dress in Islam, but also how we conduct ourselves around one another. Due to the continuous gendered conversations centred around the hijab, the fact that this idea of modesty also includes men is often forgotten.
