When something is veiled, curiousity over it arise. Same goes to veiled women.
Prejudice and stereotype had veiled the colorful side of muslim women for as long as media could remember. It is time for the world to discover a different face of muslima (muslim women), who can have a blast in the least terrorizing way.
An example can be seen in West Sumatra, Indonesia. A muslim boarding school named Perguruan Diniyyah Puteri, which literally means “School for Religious Girls”.
Wearing veil for these young women is an act of confidence and dignity in practicing Islamic faith. They oppose a generalisation that muslim women are repressed, with stripped away freedoms when wearing religious clothing.
Through this project, I like to introduce educated young muslima who are not afraid to express themselves. The face of muslima in Indonesia should also be accepted as a representation of Islam in the present day.
