Nike recently announced a move that is sure to generate a lot of controversy.
Here’s what went down…
Sports clothing manufacturer Nike is introducing a new line of Muslim friendly sportswear which will include a hijab head covering featuring the Nike swoosh brand logo.
The new “Nike Pro Hijab” is the result of several years of advocacy and product development, the company says. It is made of a light, stretchy material with an extended cape to prevent the covering from becoming untucked during strenuous movement. A Nike swoosh is emblazoned prominently above the wearer’s ears.
Couple ways to look at this.
On one hand, Nike is trying to be tolerant and make products that everyone can wear.
On the other hand, hijabs are very clearly a form of oppressing women.
