I took this last year, but in retrospect, I think it’s my strongest piece from high school.
Working on this project really made me examine my own opinions, preconceptions and prejudices about “slutty” women and women who choose to cover all of their skin alike. I used to assume that all women who wore Hijabs were being oppressed, slut-shame, and look down on and judge any woman who didn’t express her sexuality in a way that I found appropriate.
I am a Canadian Muslim and believe in human rights for ALL regardless of religion, gender, age, ethnicity etc. I support the protests held by Sikhs in India, and am APPALLED at the negative reactions stating Sikhs are “Extremists” after they rally against the DEATH PENALTY. WHERE IS THE MEDIA COVERAGE ON THE 1984 SIKH GENOCIDE WHERE 250000+ SIKHS WERE BRUTALLY KILLED!? I pledge ORANGE! One love!
