It's time to learn a little about hijabs and headscarves. Many Americans see the Hijab as synonymous with the suppression of women, and certainly women suffer in societies where they are pressured to cover their faces.
However, many fully liberated Muslim women wear the hijab. Other Muslim women reject the need to wear a hijab but respect Muslim women who do. Some Muslims don't want non-Muslim women wearing hijabs as a sign of solidarity (see this Huff Post article and WaPo Article ). It's also important to remember that some Christian (like nuns) and Jewish women and other women around the world also wear headscarves (see "The Complicated History of Headscarves").
Here's the deal: let's accept that many Muslim women, including fully liberated women, wear hijabs as a sign of their faith, just like some Christian and Jewish women wear headscarves. So let's focus our concern on Muslim women who feel pressured to cover their faces. Life for women in those societies truly does suck. Deal?--KK
