An equality charity has created a film to try and help people understand why some Muslim women decide to wear the hijab.
In a series of interviews recorded by Race Equality First they speak about how the headscarf is an important part of their faith but how this can also make them a target for discrimination.
Ayesha and her mum Shahida are both very proud to wear their Hijab, but they say it's also made them a target for discrimination.
They now live in Cardiff and say people are a lot more tolerant, but they hope this new film will help further tackle misconceptions.
One of the main misunderstandings is that they're forced to wear the hijab.
They hope speaking out - will help bring more understanding and tolerance in the future.
