A woman who wears hijab is called a muhajabat. A muhajabat explains that she makes a choice to wear hijab, because it protects her from men’s attention in the sexual way. Every Muslim woman feels as if hijab allows her to focus on her moral, educational, and professional development, more than her appearance. This example shows that, prohibiting people to wear their religious symbol means destroying their view of life, way of expressing themselves, and stealing their rights, because religion is a part of their life and who they are for this reason it cannot be taken

The Different Arguments on the Hijab (Head Scarf/Veil) Hijab is a piece of material that most Muslim women wear on their heads to hide their hair and “beauty” from the public. The wearing of head scarves varies from person to person, it can be as extreme as hiding all of the hair, face, eyes, the forehead, ears, neck and upper region of the breast, or as casual as just cover the backrest of the head or as people say in Kurdistan “they are simply covering their hair clip”. Inside the Muslim society, there are two sides of the wearing of Hijab. The first side is the pro-Hijab side; this side is divided into two other sections, the women who assume it to practice their religion and the women who are forced to hold out the Hijab.
Some of these stereotypes are the women or girl in the background is Muslim. Muslim women are one of the groups of women in the world that really do not have any rights. There are also white words at the bottom that say, “women need to be seen as equal.” This equals the subject of the ad perfectly.
Middle Eastern women have to wear the hijab because it is a symbol of modesty and privacy. They are brainwashed to think girls cannot play sports so they believe that the Pro-Nike hijab is a joke. ¨This is not the true representation of Arab, Muslim women. We do not wear a hijab and go running in the streets, shame on Nike” wrote Nada Sahimi on Nike’s Instagram page”. She is explaining how women are not athletic and how women do not run with hijabs because it is not what women do.
Although, women might say that their religious freedom is violated, I still maintain that burqa weakens the unity in France as it excludes these women from the French society. In conclusion, I strongly agree that the burqa should be banned as it participates to the spread of religious extremism by altering Islamic principles and as it is also a motive
Veiling in Women Introduction One of the main problems that are facing women in India is the issue of a veil. The veil is associated with oppression of women by the western culture (Amer, 2014). Wearing of veil has religious beliefs that are deep rooted and most women wear it because of religious factors. The veil is clothing that is worn on the head while covering the face and it is linked to women (Badru & Sackey, 2013). The original intention of the veil was for sacred objective but gender segregation and socio-cultural function have changed with evolving time (Vakil, 2011).
When looking into the topic of gender equality in Islamic countries, one can see a large disparity in the rights accessible to women from the rights given to men, which is a huge subject of controversy. This is largely due to the fact that many believe in regressive cultural practices and interpret the Qur’an and other religious texts in a way that discriminates against women. Because of this, not only do women suffer, but the countries do as a whole. In order to end this barrier of inequality, Muslim countries need to provide equal rights, equal education, and equal income/job opportunities to women. “All (of) these act as fundamental barriers not just to the advancement of women, but to the overall economic development of entire societies,”(Maha
With the latter two categories not in favour of equality then the only remaining category, if you are in favour of equality, is feminism. Misandrist feminist beliefs have negative ideas that men should suffer for their past suppression of women. This deters many people from labeling themselves as feminists. Sandra Kim addresses this in her article “How Most Things You Know About Feminists Are Vicious Conservative Lies”: Misrepresentations of feminism are so powerful that many progressives and liberals today don’t necessarily want to self-identify as a feminist even when they believe in what feminism stands for. They don’t want women or anyone else to be abused, raped, exploited and discriminated against.
By imposing sanctions for wearing a burkini, not only are Muslim women are not only being prevented from openly practicing their religion, but also their freedom of choice (of what to wear) is being limited too, by being told what is an appropriate way of dressing is. Therefore, the Muslim women are being discriminated on multiple grounds. 2. The state ought to remain neutral on religious
Lila Abu-Lughod thinks the idea of “saving” Muslim women and more specifically saving Muslim women from the veil is problematic in the sense that it puts Afghan women in a position where they are in need of saving from an outside source; that they can only be saved by the others. This is continued by detailing many women’s groups as well as Laura Bush during a radio speech she had given that continuously has an air of Western and European sources of having a superiority complex. As if Muslim women need to be save from brown men; “white men saving brown women from brown men” (784), she continues on by pointing out that this is really arrogant to take this position that puts a Western view of freedom, agency, and equality over what Muslim women
Are you going to punish a girl for something she has absolutely no control over? Girls who express themselves through their clothing, but have a strict dress code are limited. So they have all this creativity and expression bottled. If it is such a big deal about a girl having her shoulders covered and shorts, skirts, and dresses to mid thigh length then, there needs to be a change in the cheerleading uniforms. Without the turtleneck undershirt, then their shoulders are completely exposed.
