For some, the hijab is seen as an oppressive symbol – right now Iranian women are burning their headscarves in protest. But for other women around the globe – the hijab is a symbol of empowerment, beauty, and faith.

On this episode of Audacious, we hear from two women about their very different experiences with the hijab.
