Hijabis at Stanford: 'We are all individuals'
by Chiara Baravalle
In a quiet enclave of Old Union an hour before the vigil ceremony for Malala Yusufzai, a 14-year-old Pakistani activist and Taliban gun victim, Nausheen Mahmood '14 spoke emphatically about her journey with her hijab.
"The hijab is liberating in that people take you seriously and listen to what you have to say," said Mahmood, the vice president of the Islamic Society of Stanford University (ISSU).
The hijab is a traditional veil that covers the hair and neck and is worn by some Muslim women.
