Levelling the playing field for Muslim girls
by Emma Reilly
Hamilton educators want Muslim girls to get off of the sidelines and onto the sports field.
The Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board Foundation — the board's arms-length fundraising arm — is launching a campaign to raise funds for the purchase of sports hijabs for Muslim girls.
Currently, girls who wear the hijab — the traditional head scarf worn by many Muslim women after puberty — aren't able to participate in many athletic activities for fear that either the hijab or the pin that holds it in place could come loose.
