After reading Maysan Haydar’s

“Veiled Intentions: Don’t Judge a Muslim Girl by Her Covering”


AND the excerpt from Muslim Girl by Amani Al-Khatahtbeh, starting on page 676 of Rereading America, post your reaction to the articles, but in your post include the answer to both the following questions:

  • List the advantages and disadvantages that Haydar associates with covering. Do you agree that her hijab enables her “to be seen as a whole person” (paragraph 6)? Why or why not?
  • Discuss the differences and similarities between the two writers. Do you find one more persuasive or engaging than the other?

Your response should be at least 300 words.
