Hijabi Friendly Ikea Uniform

This might be old news, but it is new to me. When I was surfing the web I came across this article on the Hijab Shop website. It details Ikea’s journey that led them to launching a Hijab for muslimah members of their staff.

Hijab headlines, especially for those of use living in the ‘west’ are often so negative. Women are denied jobs, or for our European sisters, the talk of Islamic clothing bans often loom. The background leading up to this uniform addition, for Ikea, is a refreshing positive story.
