Late last month, Rattani and a group of Mipsterz (= Muslim hipsters) released a video to the tune of the Jay-Z song “Somewhere in America” .
The video shows diverse Muslim women who choose to wear the hijab, or head covering, and do so with individual style. The women are also seen doing quirky, random things like skateboarding, walking around a forest, and other hipster-esque escapades.
These women are lawyers, doctors, athletes, mothers, shoppers, but above all they are powerful Muslim American women… and they are hipsters!
The video has sparked huge amounts of commentary, both positive and negative.
This video was made to help European people imagine how a little girl can suffer from living through a war, like Syrian children do. The video shows an English girl in her environment to help people relate to her more easily. Thecharity who made the video asks people to donate money for the children of Syria.
