Covered in Light, September 21st, 2012, cover in solidarity

 (This is being shared around the web from Patheos Portal to Facebook. This is me boosting the signal and committing to covering on 09-21-12.)

Covered by Choice, Covered in Light
Description
Due to some very horrid experiences of two of our Sisters, we are planning the first annual Covered in Light International Day for raising awareness about women being discriminated against while veiled and supporting her right to veil if she chooses.

On this day, we are asking women to wear a covering of their choice to stand in solidarity and if they feel so inclined, to organize a parade/march in their local area to spread the word.

A Facebook page with all of the details will be coming soon is here. The Date is Friday Sept 21, 2012.

As part of the promotion, we are asking women to recreate in a photograph a famous painting of a covered woman to be shared on the events Facebook page to show the timeless beauty of veiled women.

Please start spreading the word!

  1. This is so very cool. Thanks for the boost! Maybe we should meet and go to dinner on that day!

  2. We absolutely should. And look at this cool site for wearing scarves! http://www.tznius.com/cgi-bin/tying.pl

  3. For shits and giggles I’m going to check with the Firm to see what their policy on this is…I’ll BET you they will not permit me to wear a headscarf that day because it is not my own personal religious subscription to do so.

    I remember years ago, a gal who was Kosher Jew worked here. After she got married she was required to cover her hair….now they also consider a wig as a head covering, but there were days when Sarah wore hats, or headscarves, and they suggested she wear something else…I think she ended up wearing a snood-type head covering which they found acceptable, but not the scarf O_o.

  4. It’s the day before the Autumnal Equinox. I feel confident you could say it is religiously motivated.
