Nike to launch an athletic hijab line for muslim athletes:
female muslim athletes will finally have an athletic line devoted to both their sport and religious needs. nike announced the launch of the nike pro hijab this week that focuses on headwear for muslim women who play sports. “the nike pro hijab may have been more than a year in the making, but its impetus can be traced much further back, to an ongoing cultural shift that has seen more women than ever embracing sport,” a statement from nike read. “this movement first permeated international consciousness in 2012, when a hijabi runner took the global stage in london.” the line will go on sale spring 2018. #womenshistorymonth (📷 nike)
