About the Session

The hijab has been a topic of heated debate worldwide. Singapore is no exception. This book –  Hijab: Everyday Stories of Muslim Women from Singapore and Beyond – captures the stories of Muslim women who navigate the ever-changing political and cultural reality of society and community, while proudly donning the hijab in private and public spaces.

In this book discussion, the editor and compiler of the work, Hidayah Amin, will chair a discussion among some of the respondents featured in the book.
