Hijab education event at city hall draws support but also some 'very nasty comments'
by Jon Willing
A low-key event educating residents about the head covering worn by Muslim women will be held at city hall this month, apparently irritating some people.
The City for All Women Initiative is organizing the two-hour event, called Ottawa Hijab Solidarity Day, on Feb. 25.
Tong Zhao-Ansari, the community engagement coordinator for CAWI, said the event is for anyone interested in learning about the hijab and the women who wear the head covering. It's a chance for people to hear the women's stories and even try on a hijab, Zhao-Ansari said.
