I wanted to share with you a worldwide event that is happening on the 21st September this year. It is called Covered in Light Day and is a day to celebrate women who chose to wear the veil, celebrating their choice and reasons to do so, (whether secular or religious) and to promote tolerance and acceptance of this choice of clothing.
This event was created to a group of Pagan women who chose to wear a veil but it is of course not just for them but for ALL women who choose to do so. The event calls for women who wear the veil to speak up proudly about it; it also calls for women who do not chose to wear it, asking them to either wear it on that one day (to experience and appreciate it) or to support those who wear it (men are of course included in this support!).
My friend Katherine spoke about the event on her own blog and inspired me to write about it here to spread the word and get people to join in! Here is her blog post:
