Iran wasn't letting her play in certain tournaments that she needs federation approval to play in, such as world champion cycles or world juniors. Of course, America is not going to have a problem with that.feedback

Why didn't they publish her unveiled picture when she was alive? Now, when she's gone, they're trying to own her, in a fake and disgusting way. They want to publish this to show the world, See, we broke the taboo!'–to use this opportunity to show that they're moderate.feedback

Pawel Uczciwek

The police is fully cooperating with me and will be able to obtain CCTV footage showing the three woman attempting to attack my partner because we are in an interracial relationship. I would advise anyone sharing or responding to this material to exercise caution as this is now a criminal investigation.feedback

Marc Tessier-Lavigne

Maryam is gone far too soon, but her impact will live on for the thousands of women she inspired to pursue math and science. Maryam was a brilliant mathematical theorist, and also a humble person who accepted honours only with the hope that it might encourage others to follow her path. Her contributions as both a scholar and a role model are significant and enduring, and she will be dearly missed here at Stanford and around the world.feedback

Maryam Mirzakhani

I never thought I would pursue mathematics until my last year in high school… My older brother was the person who got me interested in science in general. He used to tell me what he learned in school. My first memory of mathematics is probably the time that he told me about the problem of adding numbers from 1 to 100. I think he had read in a popular science journal how Gauss solved this problem. The solution was quite fascinating for me. That was the first time I enjoyed a beautiful solution, though I couldn't find it myself.feedback

Christiane Rousseau

It's an extraordinary moment. Marie-Curie had Nobel prizes in physics and chemistry at the beginning of the 20th century, but in mathematics this is the first time we have a woman winning the most prestigious prize. This is a celebration for women.feedback

Sayeeda Chowdhury

I'm a 5-foot-1-inch woman who wears a hijab. It's not the easiest place to be in the gym. It's a testosterone-filled room with everyone benching really heavy weights. Lifting gives you that confidence to take over a room. I have a narrative, I have a voice I have a unique story to tell and I'm not as afraid to tell it anymore.feedback

Rachel Been - Google

I think one of the hopes when we're creating emojis is to both be incredibly literal in terms of our representation but then also open up that emoji ... to be used in a variety of creative ways kind of across the globe.feedback

Rachel Been - Google

We kind of define the look and the feel and sort of some of the concepts behind what the emojis look like specifically for Android devices.feedback

Halima Aden

I have much more to offer than my physical appearance, and a hijab protects me against 'You're too skinny, You're too thick, Look at her hips, Look at her thigh gap.' I don't have to worry about that. Society puts so much pressure on girls to look a certain way.feedback

Halima Aden

Every little girl looks up to her mom so much – that's your first hero.feedback

Halima Aden

If you think people are against you and that you're a target, things will start appearing that way. I just go about my day, and I don't think anyone is out to get me.feedback

Halima Aden

It's how I interpret my religion, but there are women who are Muslim who choose not to wear the hijab. That's something people often forget.feedback

Halima Aden

Society puts so much pressure on girls to look a certain way. I have much more to offer than my physical appearance, and a hijab protects me against 'You're too skinny, You're too thick, Look at her hips, Look at her thigh gap.' I don't have to worry about that. For a really long time I thought being different was a negative thing. But as I grew older, I started to realize we were all born to stand out, nobody is born to blend in. How boring would this world be if everyone was the same?feedback

Halima Aden

I want girls like that to be able to flip through a magazine and see someone who looks like them. So why would I take my hijab off?feedback

Ian Griffiths - Max Mara

If you walk down a top-end shopping street in any major city, you wouldn't be surprised to see a Max Mara coat worn with a hijab. So why shouldn't our runway reflect that too?feedback

Ian Griffiths - Max Mara

I have a friend who dons the most revealing clothes. And I'm like, girl, if that's what makes you feel happy and beautiful – go ahead. I'm willing to stand up for her. But it's ironic because people will slut-shame her, but then apparently they think I'm oppressed because I choose to do the opposite and cover my body.feedback

Halima Aden

I'm signed to one of the top agencies in the world. They already have models who are willing to bare all, but there is only one right now who is wearing the hijab.feedback

Halima Aden

I understand because it's their daughters, too, whom I'm affecting. But no one in fashion is pressuring me.feedback

Debra Katz

The suggestion that somehow you have to prove the sincerity of your religious background or belief is completely inappropriate.feedback

Moustafa Bayoumi

Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoric gives attacks like those in Portland legitimacy. When the president pours fuel on the fire, where does it stop?Jeremy Christian, an avowed white supremacist with a violent past, is the alleged killer of Rick Best and Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche, but Donald Trump is not blameless for their deaths. The murder of these two heroic men and the near death of a third, Micah David-Cole Fletcher, happened last Friday in Portland, Oregon, when, according to numerous reports, Christian boarded an afternoon commuter train and began hurling anti-Muslim insults at two teenage girls, one of whom was wearing a hijab.feedback

Dan Rather

I wish we would hear you say these names, or even just tweet them. They were brave Americans who died at the hands of someone who, when all the facts are collected, we may have every right to call a terrorist. This story may not neatly fit into a narrative you pushed on the campaign trail and that has followed you into the White House. They were not killed by an undocumented immigrant or a 'radical Islamic terrorist'. They were killed in an act of civic love, facing down a man allegedly spewing hate speech directed at two teenage girls, one of whom was wearing a hijab.feedback

Muhammad Sholeh

It is unusual to see a group of hijab-wearing girls playing metal music or even women shouting. But we're talking about metal here, which is loud.feedback

Abdul Jalil

They had rented the house, they would leave the house in the morning and return at around 4:30 in the afternoon. They would wear our traditional clothes and headscarves, they were not armed and had two guards.feedback

Georgia Halliday

My mom cried when I came home in a hijab. But they are coming around.feedback

Ruth Haile

She shouted: 'Don't touch me! Don't touch me!' They cut all her dress. It was a black dress with a hijab.feedback

Rachel Lee

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

Tommy Robinson

OK, just had confirmed by a friend who was at EDL demo, this lady was defending a woman in a navy hijab as she said to the papers. [And] I don't care how many people don't like me saying that, the truth is the truth. [And] the picture is embarrassing.feedback

Linda Muis

There are a lot of Muslims. There are a lot of black people. The white people, the Dutch people, they're getting less and less. Or lock them up for life. Wilders said women shouldn't wear headscarves. I agree with that. So many people voted for him. But nobody wants to do a coalition with him. Nobody's going to let him win.feedback

Shireen Ahmed

The headlines that scream about the accomplishment of a 'Hijabi American' are unhelpful as they reduce an athlete to her outfit. It can be noted that we don't refer to any other athlete who observes a faith by a religious accessory, be it a necklace or tattoo featuring a cross, the Star of David, or a 'Karma' symbol. The optics of a veiled Muslim woman in places where it has yet to be seen is not always understood or welcome. But she has been incredibly sincere in explaining about her journey: She did not have to fight against a ban in her sport.feedback

Hajar Abulfazl

I think hijab in sport has always been part of the conversation; it just seems that the larger community is all of a sudden coming to the table. From the outside, people are saying, Nike is so unique for coming to the forefront and including the hijab in their conversation.' But there's tons of companies that have come up with a sport hijab, it's just that they don't have the same reach that Nike has. If you ask people within the Muslim community, we all know that there's been access to sport hijabs from smaller boutique companies.feedback

Hajar Abulfazl

As a role model of female sports empowerment, I wear it to show the next generation and their parents how Afghan women and girls can maintain respect for religion and culture while pursuing sports achievements and the benefits to developing independence and equality in society.feedback

Kulsoom Abdullah

In general, whether sports, work, or other institutions, if hijab is specifically stated to not be allowed, It seems it is from fear or dislike of what they think that it represents (such as all of the negative stereotypes) or that it is going to take over the world, so to speak.feedback

Kulsoom Abdullah

This has been the case sometimes, luckily me for with weightlifting. It was not until the Sydney Olympics in 2000, that women first participated in weightlifting. There was also concern that the sport was going to change and people would want to petition to wear all kinds of things, especially compression suits that could give an advantage, such as in powerlifting.feedback

Ibtihaj Muhammad

It's always difficult when you don't see someone excelling in something that you may have dreams or aspirations to participate in or excel at. It's hard to see yourself in that space.feedback

Ibtihaj Muhammad

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.feedback

Iman Amrani

Religious identity isn’t something you can take off in public. The European court of justice has turned the headscarf into a symbol of resistance. This week’s decision by the European court of justice to allow the hijab to be banned in the workplace is yet another sign of the continent’s obsession with how Muslim women dress.feedback

Aisha Manzoor

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

Frank Zaccanelli

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
