    Chicago’s Hijab Billboard Campaign Seeks To Educate

    CHICAGO (CBS) — A billboard campaign seeks to educate Chicago-area drivers about a traditional garment worn by some Muslim women.

    I generally have no issue with people freely exercising their religious beliefs. (People harming others as an expression of religious belief is not acceptable to me.) I don't care about women wearing religious garments, like hijabs.

    However, when I read this, a question came into my mind:

    “I choose to wear the hijab so I follow the command of God,” said Sara Barday, a GainPeace member. “Wearing the hijab is 100 percent my choice. As contrary to the popular believe, hijab in no way oppresses us.”
    What if she chooses not to wear the hijab?

    Go see Rohina Malik's one woman show, it addresses that question. Plus you went to high school with her and it's a great show.
    They speak in bulletpointese leftist nutjob drivel. It doesn't matter. Nothing is as great a motivator as the chance to truly be free.

    That probably won't happen, because I don't have a lot of time for that kind of thing. I see she's at the Goodman, but I don't see any dates for her show. Can you give me a hint about what she says?

    Is she related to the people in the article?

    I don't know if they're related, but the location, last name and thematic message make it likely that they're related, maybe immediate family.

    The one woman show is her playing several women and each telling their completely unique reasons for wearing the hijab, all are compelling and most are in the face of male family members opposing the choice.

    My favorite motivation was feminist in nature, essentially: "screw you, I'm not eye candy, you want something from me, you get my mind."

    I still want to know why their god is such a prude. He really focuses on other people's sex lives.
