The Olympians

Artikel yang sangat menarik ini saya temukan dari situs Hijab Style.

Selama ini, memakai Hijab dianggap akan mempersempit ruang gerak para wanita dan akan membatasi aktivitasnya. Selama pengalaman saya sendiri dalam mengenakan hijab, saya tidak merasakan hal itu sama sekali.

Apalagi di jaman sekarang dimana para disainer pakaian banyak merancang pakaian yang hijab-friendly (mode pakaian yang dapat dikenakan dengan hijab), dan ada beberapa desainer yang sudah mulai merancang berbagai mode pakaian bagi para Hijabi, untuk memenuhi kebutuhannya dalam berbagai aktivitas. Salah satunya adalah dengan merancang pakaian-pakaian untuk berolahraga, bahkan untuk berenang, sehingga para Hijabi dapat dengan nyaman melakukan segala aktivitas olahraganya.

Di dalam artikel ini, kita pun dapat melihat bahwa para wanita ini, walaupun mengenakan hijab, dapat meraih prestasi di berbagai bidang olahraga.

Di bawah ini adalah sedikit kutipan dari artikel tersebut:

Quebec designer says headscarf 'integrates rather than excludes certain communities'


MONTREAL–First, a Muslim girl was barred from a soccer match for wearing a hijab. Then, five Muslim girls were ejected from a tae kwon do tournament for the same reason.

It was 2007, at a time when Quebecers were preoccupied with how far they should go to "accommodate" the religious and cultural differences of immigrants in a secular and multicultural society.

While soccer and martial arts officials cited safety concerns, many called the ejections racist, and the incidents became part of the larger controversy.

Fast forward two years, and industrial designer Elham Seyed Javad has taken up the cause.
