One million non-Muslim women in the United States will be wearing hijabs in support of Shaima Alawadi, an Iraqi immigrant brutally killed at her home in March.
The brutal killing sparked a Facebook campaign in which scores of women are posting their pictures donning the "hijab" — a head covering the victim wore as part of her Muslim faith.
The Facebook page, called "One Million Hijabs for Shaima Alawadi," had more than 13,300 followers as of late Wednesday night.
Women posting on the page have identified themselves as Catholics, Quakers, Mennonites, Jews, Pagans, and atheists.
One posting shows a class of students, all wearing a head coverings and holding signs with a variety of messages, including "I am Shaima Alawadi," "I am Trayvon Martin," "I am Buddhist," "I am Love," "I am Bengali," "I am atheist" and "I am Christian."
