SHAFAQNA – The solution the girls from the Cedar Riverside girlsâ€™ community basketball team in Minneapolis arrived at, with the help of students at the University of Minnesota College of Design and the Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport, were new uniforms they designed themselves to be culturally and religiously appropriate.
Officially unveiled at a fashion show event Wednesday on the University of Minnesota campus, the new uniforms consist of a long-sleeve tunic top, a flexible skirt, leggings and a tighter hijab, Minnesota Daily reports. They are made of a breathable fabric. The hijab is fastened in place with Velcro for added safety.
Female Muslim athletes have been blocked from participating in major events due to their Hijab.
