  • Zahirah is an Iranian 16 year old who happens to be the new girl in school. She meets a girl named Rue, who happens to be fascinated in knowing about Zahirah's life.
  • Backstory
  • I'm really nervous for this school year. I hope I at least make a friend.
  • Hmm, there's a new girl in class. I wonder what she's wearing on her head
  • Hey I'm Zahirah, would you mine if i sit next to you?
  • Sure, no problem. My name is Rue by the way.
  • Oh, it's called a hijab. This how i dress, especially since I'm an Iranian Woman.
  • Sorry if I'm being too curious, but what's that headscarf wrapped around your head?
  • After the Iranian War against American beliefs. The law reflected our religion. In result, women didn't have the same rights as men
  • You're welcome
  • The reason why is because women like me in Iran could get arrested, beaten, or even killed.
  • Why do Iranian women have to wear a hijab?
  • Why is that so?
  • Thanks for informing me, it was really interesting.
