Nilly Dahlia, a mom in Brighton, UK, is calling on others to see what it's like to be judged for "a piece of cloth" by taking the "hijab challenge."

In a video posted by Channel Mum, Dahlia said that she was verbally abused for wearing a headscarf in a supermarket, and that when she smiles at other moms, they hardly ever smile back.

Dahlia explains that 51% of Muslim moms say that they feel lonely, which is hardly a surprise when 35% of moms say they wouldn't approach a mom who wears a hijab.

"Come on guys, it's literally just a piece of cloth on my head," Dahlia notes.

The mom of two gives a rundown of what wearing a hijab means to her. "For me it shows that I'm a Muslim woman. It's to allow people to acknowledge my personality over my looks," she explains. Plus, perks include an "instant coverup" for breastfeeding, and getting to hide a bad hair or bloating day.
