Hairy hijabs cut from Platform art exhibit in Melbourne
by Nick Toscano
Photos of women depicted wearing hijabs have been pulled from an forthcoming art exhibition in Melbourne's CBD.
The Platform art gallery in the Degraves Street underpass made a last-minute call on Monday to exclude the photo collection, claiming its representations of hijabs could imply disempowered women.
The photos at the centre of issue show women with hair draped around their necks and faces to resemble the Islamic veil.
