The Wider Image: Myanmar blogger battles bias with beauty campaign
Muslims in Buddhist-majority Myanmar usually keep a low profile for fear of intimidation, but Win Lae Phyu Sin, one of the community's rare bloggers on beauty care, has gone the other way. The 19-year-old was the centre of attraction at a recent launch of beauty products in Yangon, her striking multi-coloured makeup offset by a long-sleeved green-and-white gown and matching hijab, a headscarf worn by some Muslim women. "I don't regret my decision to wear the hijab," the blogger said. "Our God opens many ways for me. Hijab is like a key for me. I can use it to go where I want to go, and do what I want."
