Headcoverings Uncovered: Sharing Stories Across Faiths
Sun 2 April 2017, 14:30 – 16:30 BST
Women from diverse faith communities welcome your questions and share their stories on what headcoverings mean to them at this informal, dialogue centred event.
Headcoverings such as headscarves, dastars (turban) and veils are a feature of many religions including Sikhism, Islam and Christianity. These religious articles have been heavily politicised over recent years and women are often subject to suspicion, criticism and abuse because they cover - or don't cover - their heads. Contrary to a common perception, many women make a positive choice to cover and do so for a variety of reasons that may surprise you.
Come along and listen to personal stories, ask questions and engage in conversations on headcoverings in a welcoming, non-judgemental environment.
This event is taking place as part of Islam Awareness Week.
