Ilham Moussaïd is a French politician.

In 2010, aged 21, she was a candidate of the New Anticapitalist Party in Avignon, led by Olivier Besancenot.[1] Her candidacy caused controversy due to her wearing of hijab and the ongoing debate regarding the veil.[2] She is a practicing Muslim and identifies herself as a pro-choice feminist.

Some critics of Ilham say that the headscarf is an affront to women, incompatible with feminism.
