On October 18, 2001, The Detroit Free Press reported "dozens of non-Muslim women at Wayne State have chosen to wear defense of Muslims harassed since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The university is the latest to join a growing worldwide campaign urging non-Muslim women to show support by wearing hijab. 'Scarves for Solidarity' events have been held in Illinois, California, Washington, D.C., Australia, England and, last month, the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor."
