The article from the point of gender approach describes mutually excluding standards for Muslim women who wear hijab in everyday life in one of the non-Muslim regions of Russia - Tyumen region. On the one hand, secular society imposes restrictions on wearing hijabs. On the other hand, Muslim women and Muslim community basing on religious norms insist that a woman being in public must be "covered". Besides, within the Muslim community it is discussed what the hijab should be like, and the parties involved in this discussion, are stigmatized by each other. In this regard, the issue of interest is to clarify what wearing a religious headscarf means for young Muslim women. What impact hijab restrictions has on their daily lives?
