The campaign started in May. There have been 100s of online posts since it started. Some men are even showing solidarity by donning the headscarves or something white. Now the call has gone out - YOU can support by wearing something white on Wednesdays -

I received a video calling for world-wide support - by wearing something white every Wednesday. But I couldn't find that video on line to share with you :>(

This was the best I could do -

This is a good way to show solidarity within their own Country as well. People can see how many believe the same way by seeing the color white. They can still remain covered without getting into an issue of breaking a law that way.

I don't have much that is white, but I can always set it aside for Wednesday. You can go with the Luke Skywalker look any time of year.
