After a terrible start of the year with deadly jihad attacks on France and Brussels, some Muslim women at Sciences-Po University in Paris tried to host a "Hijab Day".

The "Hijab Day" is an internal campaign trying to get college students and non-Muslim women to wear Islamic veils as a way to demonstrate our unity. Some liberal feminists found the "Hijab Day" as a way of insulting the women who are forced to wear in hijabs in most Arab-Muslim world countries.

Some critics of the "Hijab Day" went as far as to propose another protest idea, a "Burn a Hijab" day.

The Muslim women at Sciences-Po University are not alone as similar campaigns have come to the United States. The United States also has a "Walk a Mile in Her Hijab" day.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is not alone in speaking out against the Hijab brigade.

She was recently quoted as saying "...To us, the "hijab" is a symbol of an interpretation of Islam we reject that believes that women are a sexual distraction to men, who are weak, and thus must not be tempted by the sight of our hair. We don't buy it.

This ideology promotes a social attitude that absolves men of sexually harassing women and puts the onus on the victim to protect herself by covering up."

Do you think the United States should promote a campaign such as “Hijab Day” or “Walk a Mile in Her Hijab Day?”
