Last quote by Fariha Róisín

One of the crucial reasons representation is important is because it allows people to be seen. Gigi Hadid, though I appreciate her lineage, hasn't ever talked about her background and in many ways navigates the world passing as a white woman, which makes it tricky when... she wants to claim a space, like the cover of Vogue Arabia. I understand navigating the world is one's own journey, but as a Muslim woman of colour, I don't have a lot of options to hide what I am. A lot of hijab'd women really have no option to hide what they are.
