Saying that these garments are “conservative” puts it far too lightly. Why is it that liberals always point at the US first when it comes to women’s rights? If questioned, most liberals would tell you that it’s okay “because it’s their religion”. So then, why is it that fundamental Christians can’t believe that homosexuality is a sin without constant persecution? The double standard is, as always, astounding. –PBN
The way women dress is an important social issue in most Middle Eastern countries, where more conservative clothing is generally the rule of thumb.
While social norms vary by location, a recent study conducted by the University of Michigan’s Institute for Social Research yielded some fascinating results.
The survey, which was conducted in Muslim-majority countries, including Egypt, Tunisia, Iraq, Lebanon, Oakistan, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, found that most people there prefer that a female has her hair covered when she is out in public.
But that doesn’t necessarily mean that they believe her face should also be veiled.
According to The Pew Research Center, respondents were presented with a card depicting four unlabeled styles of dress, requiring those giving their preference to do so based on a graphic interpretation.
They were then asked the question: “Which style of dress is appropriate for women in public?”
The first woman was shown in a full burqa, while the last wore no headdress at all. The pictures in the middle ranged in terms of how much of the head and face were covered.
