Super Hijabi: Tawakkol Karman

“Do not be silent. You ask, ‘What can we do?' You have to be the leader, you have to lead with action. You have to think that ‘I can be the leader' and not be the victim. This is what happened in the Arab Spring. Women decided to be the leaders, to suffer and to struggle and to be killed for their freedom, for their dignity.”

Tawakkol Karman

At HijabiTopia we love celebrating, congratulating and sharing information about wonderful hijabis who are great role models. These women are educated, corageous, hard working, and take a stand that no other human might dare to take. They don't sit around and say, "oh, I was dicriminated against because I wear hijab" or, "I didn't get that job because I wear hijab", they don't sit around and make excuses, or decide to take off their hijab, they take the action to make the necessary change. They are empowered by their hijab and the strength in their faith to become the action. 

Here is an article about Super Hijabi and Nobel Peace Laureate Tawakkol Karman, written by one of our favorite writers Richard Peres.

More power to amazing super hijabis!!!
