Behind the Veil: The Intersection of Religion, Politics, and Culture

Where does the hijab fit into the fabric of our daily lives as Muslims in the U.S.? This is a question that Muslims, non-Muslims, governments, and everyone in between seem to have an answer to.

This is a recording of Yaqeen’s first LIVE webinar, “Behind the Veil: The Intersection of Religion, Politics, and Culture”, originally aired on October 12, 2017. Featuring Amina Darwish, Hosai Mojaddidi, Ieasha Prime, Dalia Mogahed, and moderated by Yaqeen Institute Fellows Nour Soubani and Tesneem Alkiek.
