on Muslim identity

Several 'new' magazines are targeted to Muslim-American audiences. I subscribe to one of them - Muslim Girl - the one in the fuzzy picture to the left, and I read it whenever it comes, which is I would say sporadically. (It's supposed to be every other month). The article of course brings up the question of whether and how often the models are pictured wearing hijab.

Contrast this with the Obama campaign's snubbing of women wearing headscarves. Why do I feel that this is the week of the hijab?
