Playboy features woman wearing hijab

For the first time in Playboy's history, the magazine is featuring a Muslim American woman wearing a Hijab

 

For the first time ever, Playboy has featured a woman wearing a hijab.

The magazine's October issue includes an interview with 22-year-old journalist Noor Tagouri, who's a reporter for online news outlet, Newsy. The accompanying photo shows a fully-clothed Tagouri wearing the traditional Muslim head scarf in front of a red, white and blue backdrop. Playboy stopped publishing nude photos earlier this year.

Tagouri says the hijab has helped her create trust with her interview subjects as a reporter. She says as a Muslim woman, she knows "what it's like to be misrepresented in the media."

Tagouri aspires to become the first anchor wearing a hijab on a commercial TV station in the U.S.
