Nike's hijab line for Muslim female athletes, and Sydney boys on the importance of feminism

Sportswear for Muslim female athletes
Nike has launched a sporty hijab line that Muslim female athletes helped design, and which will go on sale next year.
The female athletes involved in the design process also featured in the campaign photographs, including Egyptian runner Manal Rostom.
On her Instagram page, Manal said: "It's not easy growing up , at least in this region, being a girl . So much pressure, constraints and confusion - sometimes you want to just run away from it all."
One hijabi said that that the move by Nike was "possibly a game changer for elite athletes with top technology on offer".
Some were also hopeful that the move would normalise the presence of hijabis in sport.
Another athlete added that she was "stoked" for the line: "I played basketball and ran track for 5 years. Every season, someone had a problem with my uniform. So many Muslim girls still go through this."
