Just A Piece of Cloth    facebook logo


Just a Piece of Cloth is a 34-minute documentary that unravels stereotypes perpetuated by the mainstream media about Muslim women. The video features four San Francisco Bay Area Muslim women from diverse backgrounds as they talk about what hijab, the traditional Muslim headscarf, means to them and how it affects their daily lives. With humor, seriousness, and candor they speak from personal experience about this often controversial garment. Despite their unique stories, universal human questions lie just beneath the surface: What boundaries define me? How do I travel across those boundaries to be true to myself, my community, and my faith? How do I transform the stories that limit my potential?
