Mmm. The niqab debate has sparked an intriguing ripple in Canadian society, with a moment by afoot to vote mummer style; that is, wearing facial coverings, as a form of quiet civil rebellion against our increasingly draconian security measures. I can get behind this!
Meanwhile, I’ve been participating in the #RedShawlProject and #ReDRESSProject, which are grassroots art projects designed to draw awareness to #MissingSistersInCanada.
I found the experience to be both very triggering and healing and hope the photos help bring closure and justice for so many.
This is the scarf I lived under sharia law in. It is eggplant and has tiny rosebuds. The p were taken with an iPhone in rural Alberta on private property.
