“Though not all Muslim women wear headscarves, a lot of American Muslim women, who are wearing the headscarf are choosing to do that out of a point of identity and out of expression of their own freedom."

Question:

In the Twitter posts associated with this thread, I noticed some younger women in Hijabs and modest dress wearing ONE white and blue gauntleted glove on the right hand, is there a significance I have not heard of?

On further review, the girls were in company with the well known female Muslim fencer, it may have been a dueling glove?

I don't know the answer, but since it was posted by a member of the U.S. fencing team, I'm going to guess you're right.
