LOS Angeles, Sep 28: Playboy magazine, for the first time, is featuring a Muslim woman wearing a hijab, in a spread that is drawing both praise and criticism.

American journalist Noor Tagouri appears in the magazine’s October “Renegades” edition, a series that focuses on men and women “who risked it all — even their lives — to do what they love.”

The 22-year-old journalist who works as a reporter for Newsy, a video news network, is seen  wearing a black leather jacket, jeans, sneakers and a hijab, or headscarf, in the publication that describes her as “a badass activist.”

“I know what it’s like to have the narrative of our community be skewed and exploited in the media,” she told Playboy.
