Gap’s Fall Ad Campaign Stars Jewish and Muslim Women

Through Gap’s “Meet Me in the Gap” fall campaign, the 19-year-old Mikaela Strauss, AKA pop artist King Princess is pushing for diversity, and unity across differences. The campaign features a fierce-looking Mikaela sitting alongside 24-year-old hijab-wearing journalist, Noor Tagouri, who tweeted about her involvement with the diversified Gap ad.

“It really reflects the idea that although we may be from different parts of the world, when we come together, we can create something magical,” says Grammy-nominated recording artist and last year’s campaign’s frontrunner, Janelle Monáe.

Launched earlier last month, the holiday campaign features a mix of families, models and influencers like hip-hop artists Cher and Future, promoting diversity just in time for Thanksgiving — and the midterm elections.

I hope you appreciated this article. Before you go, I’d like to ask you to please support the Forward’s award-winning journalism this Passover.

In this age of misinformation, our work is needed like never before. We report on the news that matters most to American Jews, driven by truth, not ideology.

At a time when newsrooms are closing or cutting back, the Forward has removed its paywall. That means for the first time in our 126-year history, Forward journalism is free to everyone, everywhere. With an ongoing war, rising antisemitism, and a flood of disinformation that may affect the upcoming election, we believe that free and open access to Jewish journalism is imperative.

Readers like you make it all possible. Right now, we’re in the middle of our Passover Pledge Drive and we need 500 people to step up and make a gift to sustain our trustworthy, independent journalism.

Make a gift of any size and become a Forward member today. You’ll support our mission to tell the American Jewish story fully and fairly.
