February 13th- Purple Hijab Day

      “International Purple Hijab Day, Saturday, February 13, 2010 is a day to reflect on the deaths which have resulted from domestic violence. A purple hijab is an apt reference for this phenomenon. The hijab—or head scarf, is a symbol of the modesty and piety associated with Muslim womanhood. Purple is a color associated with mourning. Hopefully, a purple hijab will bring to mind what is important for us to remember.”*

  1. Yes, but the purple colour can also be associated with spirituality in some cultures.

    In Germany the purple colour is associated with the feminine.

    What is your favorite colour?
