Everyone Can Relate to These Comics About Wearing a Hijab in America

“Muslim women don’t often get a platform to tell our stories or share the silly — sometimes stressful — idiosyncrasies of our day-to-day lives,” Huda Fahmy, a 33-year-old American Muslim artist, says.

Her work provides a hilarious and off-beat look at what it’s like being a hijab-wearing Muslim in America. But the best thing about her work is that, on some level, everyone can relate to it.

“The most (pleasantly) unexpected part of this whole journey has been discovering just how many people relate to my experiences,” she says. “Muslims, Christians, Jews, atheists, young people, old people, vegans, Democrats, Republicans.”

She adds: “At the very least, it has served as a springboard for discussion, and I’m completely down for anything that opens the lines of respectful dialogue.”
