Hack #2

Today, in my communications class, we were to read an article and create citations and an outline for the article. My partner and I were assigned an article about a 17 year old girl who wasn’t hired at Abercrombie & Fitch, most likely because she wears a hijab and doesn’t fit the “image” of the store. The case has been debated since 2008. Everything has a history, as we have heard multiple times during lecture. This form of discrimination in not hiring the Muslim girl has been seen increasingly since the events of 9/11. Not all discrimination stems from that specific event, but the occurrence of it has increased dramatically since then. Abercrombie & Fitch doesn’t seemingly cater to more than a few types of people, bodies, and styles, which is the cause of the growing animosity towards the company.
