Dundonians donned hijabs as part of an initiative to show solidarity with Muslims living in the city.
Young people from Changemakers, a local project helping those from ethnic minority backgrounds find work, took to the city centre to raise awareness of religious dress.
They invited passersby to write down their views on the hijab a veil that covers the hair, but not the face as well as to try one out for themselves.
The initiative was launched after research by the group found that 68% of young Scottish Muslims felt that their faith or culture was a factor when applying for a job.
A further 32% felt that their employer’s dress code was incompatible with their beliefs or culture and 9% were worried that they would be treated differently due to their race or religion.
Sana Zaveri, 23, operations manager of Changemakers, said: “After recent events abroad, there have been a lot of misconceptions about Muslims and religious dress. In general Dundee is a very accepting city but many people are not aware about different religious dress.
“Our aim was to show them what it’s all about and to clear up any misconceptions.
“The response was very positive most people were willing to find out more and a few people tried on the hijabs and walked around with them.”
The Changemakers group made a video of their outing, which has already received more than 22,000 post views in under 24 hours.
Speaking on camera, one of the women who tried the hijab said: “I actually liked wearing the hijab because you can show a bit of entitlement to wear what you like within reason.
“But I think because we’re white women wearing something we’re not used to, we got lots of strange glances and looks.
“Not aggressively, but it was really weird.”
