In Congress, Rashida Tlaib wears traditional Palestinian thobe


At her swearing-in ceremony, Rashida Tlaib began the trend by wearing a traditional Palestinian thobe.

Rashida Tlaib was sworn into Congress today in one very special outfit.

Rashida Tlaib was officially sworn in today as one of the first two Muslim women to be elected to Congress, and she selected for the occasion a very special outfit: a Palestinian tho be.

The Michigan Congresswoman first previewed her style selection on Instagram last month when she shared on her Instagram page a photo of the traditional, hand-embroidered gown, capturing the post, “Sneak peek: this is what I wear when I’m sworn in Congress. # PalestinianThobe # ForMyYama.”
