Abstract

Muslim women who wear the hijab in the United States are often discriminated against by others, with misperceptions such as them being terrorists, evil, or even on the opposite end of the spectrum of them being oppressed as part of their culture. Since the treatment of people with different cultures, ethnicities, and religions has been such a wide topic with varying opinions in the United States, the author decided to put herself in the shoes of a Muslim woman wearing the hijab and gauge how she was treated in public. Also explored was the variety of perspectives others have on Muslim women. Additionally, the author asked several Muslim women how they feel about going out in America today. The video included in this presentation will include the perceptions of how people feel about Muslim women, how Muslim women feel about going out in society, actions of the publics’ reactions and behaviors, along with the author’s overall impression and experience.
