In recent years, Hijab has also been embraced by some non-Muslim women as a way to show solidarity with Muslim women and to challenge Islamophobia and discrimination.

For some, it is a deeply personal and spiritual decision, while for others it is a way to express their cultural identity or to engage in political and social activism.
