The hijab banning in France is as self explanatory as it sounds. The religious freedom of Muslim women are being taken away as a form of political tug-of-war. Women who were happy to express their free will of wearing a hijab in public to show honor for their religion, are now forbidden to do so. A hijab is worn by women to maintain modesty and privacy from unrelated males so this headscarf is something that may make women feel more confident or safe. However it is being pulled away from them for no genuine reason. This situation has happened more than enough times in history and it’s tiring. Just to mention one example, we can think back to the rule of Kemal Ataturk (1881-1938). Kemal increased modernization during his rule by giving women the right to vote, improved literacy rates, etc. However, women’s religious freedoms were snatched without a thought. Just like it is being done here. Women were prohibited from wearing headscarves- in fact, call to prayer had to be in Turkish rather than Arabic.

My proposal is to spread awareness of this problem and start a petition in order to reform against the hatred that is occurring. Additionally, have organized protests for people to gather at and show what they are standing for. With these peaceful oppositions, I hope to stir enough noise that politicians are FORCED to recognize muslim voices.
