Spotted: An extremely oppressed brown woman skating her way to Oppressedville.
Let me tell you about this oppressed girl though, she started her own international Hijab company online called Vela Scarves.
Marwa Atik was born and raised in the California to Syrian parents. Her passion for the veil (hijab), combined with her eye for fashion and design expertise, is apparent in her exclusive creations. Vela was born in 2009, when Marwa simply began incorporating her favorite accents, such as ruffles and zippers, into otherwise bland veils and advertising via word of mouth. Marwa also extended her creativity to designing actual techniques of how to wear the veils, based on their respective designs and style.
In 2010, Marwa and her sister, Tasneem Atik Sabri, partnered to officially launch their company and website to bring beautiful, elegant, and affordable veils to women globally.

I’ve seen a lot of this on Tumblr lately, so this is for all of you (including me) who want to run around in jean shorts all summer but feel like you can’t because of some intangible socially conscribed idea of what bare legs are ‘supposed’ to look like.
(Of course, some people have their own perfectly good reasons for wanting to cover up, and that’s just as fine).
Rocking shorts and skirts this summer.
Showing off my tattoos and stubble and scars.
