Mason High School hijab event canceled over First Amendment concerns
by Joe Rosemeyer
Mason High School students are getting a first-hand First Amendment lesson after the school canceled an event that invited girls to spend the day wearing a hijab, the headscarf often worn by Muslim women.
The school's Muslim Student Association had the idea to organize a "Covered For A Day" event Thursday, April 23. The event was aimed at showing non-Muslims what it's like to wear the headscarf.
The event isn't unique to Mason High; it's held on college campuses and sometimes at high schools, said Karen Dabdoub, Executive Director of the Cincinnati Chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations.
