Iman Meskini

‘Why do female muslims wear the hijab? Why do people consider the hijab oppressive? Do those who wear it find it oppressive?’ Iman Meskini (better known as Sana in popular Norwegian TV show SKAM) asked these questions on Instagram.

She received several hundred responses covering the entire emotional spectrum of feelings about and attitudes against the headwear. The Instagram thread also says more than all the research and TV reports in the world about the young Muslims' view of themselves and their place in modern society.
