Ok, I don’t wear the niqaab, with that being said, I think it takes a lot of guts to wear it, but then again, I guess that’s what non hijaabi’s may think of me ! It seems that men have always felt unconsciously that they hold the rights of dictatorship on what a woman should and should not wear, regardless of their religion and creed. Whether its Sarkozy banning the niqaab in France, or the Taliban enforcing it in Afghanistan, a woman’s choice of clothing should be of her own will.
Every woman wants to be accepted and appreciated for her personal achievements, whether she’s based on Wall Street, or in the kitchen cooking meals for her family. They say “clothes don’t make a man” but clearly that doesn’t apply for women.
