Born into a practising Muslim family in the Parisian suburbs, Mariame Tighanimine wore a hijab for a long time. Until, little by little, she began to realise that everything she said, wrote and thought was seen through her ‘hijab’ by the external world.
This manifesto-book, courageously bringing nuance to a debate so often lacking in it, explores questions that the hijab raises for women and, beyond that, for society as a whole.
