Two Sarnia women share their experiences of the hijab and niqab

Rezan Mosa and Aruba Mahmud joined us at last week's Global Citizenship Summit and shared their perspectives on the hijab and niqab. Both women explained that they dress as they do not because they're oppressed, but because they're free. Mahmus explains that "in a world where women are hyper-sexualized, it was liberating" to commit to the hijab. Mosa and Mahmud shared some of their thoughts with Sarnia Journal reporter Cathy Dobson: you can read the full article here.

Thanks again to Aruba and Rezan for contributing to Lambton College's second annual Global Citizenship Summit!
