Song Of The Week, Mona Haydar´s `Hijabi´
Mona Haydar is a Syrian-American artist from Flint, Michigan,USA. She wears a hijab. She's been a performance poet for 13 years, writing about love, trauma, loss and joy. She calls her music "resistance music" because it celebrates diversity and calls for women to be "unapologetic about who they are" with lyrics like: "Make a feminist planet / Women haters get banished / Covered up or not, don't ever take us for granted."
The lyrics of this song comment on the notion that the hijab is an oppressive tradition. What is your point of view about this topic?
