M&S are selling hijabs as part of it's school uniform range.

Post by Syl on Sat Oct 13, 2018 11:27 pm

Sold in small, medium or large, fits from age 4 years and over.

MARKS and Spencer has come under fire for “facilitating medievalism” by selling hijabs for girls as young as four.

The retail giant was condemned by anti-extremism campaigners and customers alike for choosing “profits over values” after it emerged M&S was selling child-size hijabs for £6 each as part of its school uniform range.

Maajid Nawaz, the founder of the Quilliam counter extremism organisation, accused M&S of effectively telling young girls it was “immodest” to show their hair.

He wrote on Twitter: “M&S facilitates medievalism by selling children’s hijabs in the schoolwear category.

“It's their right to choose profit over values. But it's our right to shame them for doing so."

Is it a sign of the times then that children as young as 4 years old are expected to wear a hijab as part of the school uniform....and no one bats an eye?

Or has M&S simply bent over backwards to cater for a ridiculous minority.

Um, this is ridiculous. The only, only, only reason M&S exists is to make profits, and the only reason it sells any damn thing is to make profits.

Profits, not prophets Rolling Eyes

Any time any business anywhere in the world does anything at all is because it thinks doing so will mean more money.

I was just going to ask: Is it profitable? M & S have no agenda except to make money. If it is not profitable and they are doing it, it might raise suspicions. Or, from the other side, if they are somehow in the business of promoting Saudi culture, how much support is given to them by the Saudi government?

I can't see where it says they're for four-year old children. In fact, the sizing would suggest they're for older girls.

Someone made a comment in a review that a medium would fit a four-year old, but the measurements don't support that. The measurements are for a larger head. Just because someone thinks they come up small doesn't mean they're made for four-year old girls. Does M&S actually say that they would suit a four-year old?

Fur doesn't make a profit if people boycott a store for selling it, which is quite likely these days. Of course, there might be some ethics involved, but shops largely go by what their customers want.

Its sold by M&S online, The article says
"The sizes are vague, coming in small, medium and large without giving a specific age range or a size guide to explain what age each of the sizes is aimed at but online reviews suggest a “medium” would fit a four-year-old."

Yes, one reviewer suggested that, but that's not the same as the hijab being made for four-year girls is it? Perhaps the reviewer thinks a hijab should be looser. There is a size guide actually.

Look at the measurements.

To fit head circumference small - 55-56cm, medium - 56-57cm & large - 57-58cm

Those are pretty much adult sizes - more for a teenage girl I would say.

From what I can see M&S dont give age guides, they are obviously childrens sizes as they are in the school essential category.
I imagine if any parent is stupid enough to feel their schoolchild should need to cover her head and hair up for school they would have to take a guess or do what many people do when buying clothes items online... take note of the comments previously left.

A boycott is an effective way to combat corporate capitalism.

Exactly - they don't give age guides, so to say they're selling hijab's for four-year old girls is not accurate at all. As I said, look at the measurements. "Children" could mean any age up to 18, so the article is really misleading.

Look, one reviewer felt that the sizing was too small - another might think it's fine. There aren't enough comments to go on. You can't go on what one person said.

M&S say that they've had requests for hijabs so they're just providing what customers want.

Yes it is. I'm not sure that people would boycott M&S just because they sell hijabs though.

Some people disagree. M&S will sell them if there's a demand for them, and they'll stop if there isn't.

There is something very wrong when you put little girls in hijabs, everytime there are photos in the local paper of primary schools many girls are wearing hijabs.
If an adult woman chooses to wear this so be it but not children, many mothers start them young because it takes some getting used to and they will have to wear them so want them trained before the girls may decide they don't want to wear them and there'll be trouble.

Tesco isn't really the same sort of shop. M&S are very good for underwear - nothing poncy about that.

Prohibitively high prices tho.

Are you talking about Marks & Spencer? I shopped the one in the Financial District, and never saw any food for sale.

They sell both. More food than clothes, if anything.
But yes they may have stores targeted at special niches which sell only one or the other.

M&S food is great, and it doesn't work out much more expensive than other popular food outlets ...just look for the special offers.
The fresh fruit and veg doesnt usually go off quick like other similar priced shops either.

Their clothes have gone very dowdy though....Im not sure who their target market is now.

M&S are middle of the road, they always have been, but they are luxury personified compared to the most popular UK high street stores like Primark and Aldi.

I prefer Tesco, the people who shop at M&S are poncy.

How rude. snobby
