At a time where it feels like the world is regressing, Nike is here to remind us that change is possible. The sports brand has just announced that they will be launching an athletic hijab in the spring of 2018.
Although the company isn’t the first to create the much needed accessory, reported on BBC, “Nikie is the first major international company to embrace the sports needs of Muslim women.”
They had been developing the athletic hijab for about a year and they say that light fabric will be more comfortable while working out.
