In today's society  and for generations, race and discrimination to minorities has been a crisis  and extremely controversial. Oppression and discrimination towards women of  Islam has dramatically grown after the 9/11 attacks. The hijab worn by Muslim  women is a symbol that is linked to both gender and to religion. This project  is aimed at exploring the arguments and reasoning behind the ideas that make  the discrimination and oppression to these women and the Muslim community,  which influence how society views these individuals especially after the  terror attacks of 9/11.
