American Eagle Outfitters recently broke barriers with the launch of a denim hijab.

AEO’s hijab was available starting July 8 as an online only item for just under $20. It made headlines on social media and was sold out in just over a week.

The head covering, which was part of its Fall ’17 campaign, “received an overwhelmingly positive response,” according to Matthew Owens of SHADOW, the firm that represents American Eagle. 

American Eagle’s fall ad featured Somali-American model Halima Aden wearing the hijab.

“Handpicked for their ability to break stereotypes and credibility in their multi-hyphenated careers, the Fall 2017 campaign features a new cast of millennials from varied industries and backgrounds,” American Eagle said in a release announcing the campaign launch.

The company has yet to say whether they plan to re-stock the product online, or introduce it in their stores. The retailer has area locations in Danbury, Milford, Trumbull and Stamford.

A report by Retail Dive writes, “Many apparel retailers are looking to the Middle East for overseas growth, where in many areas a young and growing middle class includes fashion-forward women interested in head coverings that allow them to conform to their traditions with style.”

Nike is among the retailers working to add fashion-inclusive products. It recently announced plans to launch a Nike Pro hijab for Muslim women athletes in early 2018.

“The fact that Nike and American Eagle are getting into this category demonstrates how powerful a niche this could be,” the Retail Dive report said.

‘People Have to Start Respecting the Vagina’ – Janelle Monáe

R&B music star Janelle Monáe graces the cover of Marie Claire’s May issue, citing bold statements and taking a stance on women’s rights and female empowerment. 

In her interview, the Moonlight actress discussed the actions of men and how that contributes to society the way women are presented. “People have to start respecting the vagina,” said Monáe. “Until every man is fighting for our rights, we should consider stopping having sex. I love men. But evil men? I will not tolerate that. You don’t deserve to be in my presence. If you’re going to rule this world, I am not going to contribute anymore until you change it.” 

The R&B artist is one of the five featured cover stars of the magazine for their, “The Future is Female” edition, along with Aja Naomi King, Emily Ratajkowski, Zoey Deutch, and Alexandra Daddario. 

With all that’s been going on in the world and news, Monáe is taking a step forward and expressing what it means to be a young black woman. “We have to realize our power and our magic,” expresses the passionate singer. “Because I am all about black-girl magic, even though I’m standing with all women. But this year? This yeah, I am so carefree black girl.” 

The other featured women on the cover also contribute to the “all-female future” theme. Ratajkowski describes the contradictions of being a sex symbol and feminist. “In every profile written about me, there is, ‘She’s so sexual and she’s such a sex symbol,’ paired with, ‘But wow, she knows about politics,’ And that in itself is sexist. Why does it have to be one or the other?”
