Stony Brook MSA Calls for Women to Accept the Hijab…For a Good Cause

What an interesting way of getting women to accept their secondary status, and getting Western women to feel comfortable with it… Make the leash appealing by coupling it with a noble cause: At the Stony Brook University Muslim Students Association (an organization founded by the Muslim Brotherhood, btw): Scarves for Solidarity



The purpose of Scarves for Solidarity is to help save battered women while spreading awareness about Islam. The Muslim Student Association is working with sponsors who plan to donate $5 to Battered Women’s Shelter for every female who volunteers to wear a head-scarf/hijab on Monday, April 7th 2007.



Head-scarves will be available (FOR FREE) at the Union lobby between 12 pm and 3 pm throughout the week of Monday, March 31st. All that is required from you is to wear the scarf provided for you from 10am until 7:30 pm on April 7th. The scarves will all be the same color so that you can recognize other women volunteering to save battered women…

Note handy “how to” wearing tips in the posting, as well as the coupling with the “Women’s [Wo/Men’s according to the web site] Gender Resource Center” in the poster.
