If there are four emoji, four spaces on the keyboard reserved for the four stages of a mailbox, why on earth isn't there one for a hijab for the 500 million.feedback

“Having a Muslim woman, especially from the United States, who's played on Team USA, who's medaled at the Olympics, it shows people in and outside of the Muslim communities that it can be done. While I wish there had been another Muslim woman before who had done all things that I've been able to accomplish, I still feel very grateful. I hope there are tons and tons of Muslim women who come after me, and hopefully their journey will be easier because I've laid this groundwork in showing that it's possible.” said Ibtihaj Muhammad speaking about Hijab.

As a Muslim woman who wears a hijab, I applaud major brands such as Nike catering towards Muslim women – but at the same time they are a few years late. There are Muslim brands out there – both international and American – who have been doing this for a long time. I hope Nike will bring attention to the brands that have been doing this, and shed light on their work. I am willing to give anything a try and am looking forward to seeing what the Pro Hijab will look like. I also saw that they're working with famous [Muslim] athletes, so that pulls me and I think other Muslims in.feedback

The biggest surprise for me would be if Nike's competitors like Adidas and Under Armour don't immediately follow suit. They better not waste any time.feedback

Hussam Ayloush

One out of four people in our world is Muslim. It makes good business sense to cater to such a large segment of consumers. Over the past decade, we have seen many major corporations cater to this rapidly growing consumer market by introducing halal and other Sharia-compliant items, such as clothing, food, and financial products.feedback

Hussam Ayloush

Nike entering this market will help bring attention to the existence and profitability of this growing market; hence attracting many more corporations and products. This increased supply will also provide the Muslim consumers with more options, improved quality, and possibly reduced prices.feedback

Aisha Manzoor

I'd say the range for an athletic hijab is between $15 and $45.feedback

Hussam Ayloush

Regardless of the values driving this new product, it is always a welcomed move when corporations and media normalize the presence of Islam and Muslims in our world and especially in the U.S. Such normalization helps weaken the rhetoric of fear and bigotry advanced by the powerful Islamophobia industry.feedback

Sherin Sultana

Nike launching their own line really advertises a bigger price tag. It kinda seems like it's more for the money than the need.feedback

Sherin Sultana

I think it's great that such a large corporation has finally recognized the need for more comfortable head-covering for [Muslim women] athletes, but it's a little too late. There are many Muslim-owned companies that have been making breathable workout hijabs to cater towards women who cover, but smaller companies obviously don't get as much recognition.feedback

Andy Warner

The officials of the game there took a strict interpretation of the rule, instead of the spirit of the rule. Does this fundamentally alter the game? Does this create an inherent risk? Does it create a competitive advantage? It doesn't do any of those things, so why are we denying what would be approved if they were to put a simple request into the association?feedback

Donita Adams

I didn't even want to look down at Je'Nan in that moment. I had not yet told her that she wasn't allowed to play in the game because of her headscarf.feedback

Nan Hayes

I felt discriminated against and I didn't feel good at all. If it was some reason like my shirt wasn't the right color or whatever, then I'd be like, okay.' But because of my religion it took it to a whole different level, and I just felt that it was not right at all.feedback

Nan Hayes

I know definitely next year I'm going to try out for basketball. It does not stop here.feedback

Manal Rostom

There are a lot of … women and girls who are breaking barriers. For me growing up, though, I never had these women to look up to. I had to break these barriers for myself.feedback

Zahra Lari

People may think or tell you that you can't do certain things, but I'm going to show them you absolutely can. I am covered, I am Muslim, I am from a desert country, and I'm doing a winter sport.feedback

Nada Sahimi

I think this ad was an utter fail. This is not the true representation of Arab, Muslim women. We do not wear a hijab and go running in the streets, shame on Nike.feedback

Belma Corbo

Unfortunately, we are aware that throughout the history there were periods when Muslim women wearing the hijab had a rough time, or had an easier time. So, today, we are probably in a period when we are under special scrutiny, and it is our duty to present ourselves in a special way, to be as positive as we can. We have to explain to people that this is a very positive story, something that is opening new doors for us, and it's definitely not restraining us.feedback

Soumaya Bezgrari

It was my choice to wear the niqab. It's not because my husband makes me do it – not at all. The niqab protects me. I don't get the builders whistling at me or looking at me inappropriately. With the niqab, they can't harass you. They might shout verbal comments, but I deal with it.feedback

Yasmin Alibhai-Brown

Women I respect and like wear hijabs and jilbabs to articulate their faith and identity. Others do so to follow their dreams, to go into higher education or jobs. And an increasing number are making a political statement. I am not assuming that the coverings all represent simple oppression. What I am saying is that many women who take up the veil, in any of its forms, do so without delving fully into its implications, significance or history. Their choice, even if independently made, may not be fully examined.feedback

Shaaz Mahboob

Whether it's security at airports, identification in banks or during job or dole (income support) interviews, it is the right of the authorities and businesses to be certain of who they are dealing with on the basis of identity and communication. Furthermore, it is perfectly reasonable that the general public feel reasonably secure about the persons sharing the same public sphere. Not knowing whether an individual amongst them is a man or a woman due to their attire is deeply unsettling and any such anxieties must be addressed by the relevant changes to law.feedback

Nazma Khan

I had no idea a piece of fabric on my head would cause me so much pain for the next seven years. I was discriminated against both verbally and physically. I was called names such as Batman and ninja. At one point students literally kicked and spat at me both inside and outside the school.feedback

Soumaya Bezgrari

There are thousands who wear the niqab, are you telling me all of them have been oppressed into wearing it by their husbands?feedback

Ginella Massa

It wasn't until my editor said, Hey, great job! Was that a first for Canada? A woman in a hijab?' And I said, Yes'. As much as I knew it was important, I didn't expect the reaction that I received. My phone hasn't stopped buzzing for the last week. That's a wrap! Tonight wasn't just important for me. I don't think a woman in hijab has ever anchored a newscast in Canada. Thx CityNews.feedback

Bernard Cazeneuve

As the prime minister has said, the government refuses to legislate on the matter because any such law would be unconstitutional, ineffective and likely to create antagonism and irreparable tension. However, Muslims must continue to engage with us over gender equality, the inviolate nature of the principles of the French Republic, and tolerance in order to live together in peace. In overruling the ban, the court had "stated the law.feedback

Feiza Ben Mohamed

The only outfit that is prohibited is the burka that conceals the face. That is not the case here. Today girls who swim in a burkina are hiding the same parts of their body as those who wear a hijab. So Muslim women are being stigmatized and excluded from the beaches and swimming areas.feedback

Ibtihaj Muhammad

I feel like it's a blessing to be able to represent so many people who don't have voices, who don't speak up. It's just been a really remarkable experience.feedback

Thana Zelide

I was cheering for them. They were about my age and were up against it in this match.feedback

Ibtihaj Muhammad

There is that silver lining in the sense that you do have that team event. I know that the Americans didn't perform in the way that we wanted, but I love my team, I love my teammates and I believe in them. I believe in myself. I believe in us, and I want us to win a medal more than anything. I want us to do it for our country.feedback

Christophe Billon

We know that Iranian women have to wear the hijab. We accept this because it is also important to have Iranian women in our competitions. If we said 'no you can not participate in our competitions because you are wearing a veil' it would be damaging to our sport.feedback

James Dingemans

She was working alongside colleagues who were able to wear religious symbols and attire including the Sikh turban, the Sikh bracelet, the Muslim hijab and the Jewish skull cap.feedback

Suzi Brown

Disney has a long history of non-discrimination and we're working with the cast member directly to try to accommodate her request.feedback
