Why Drop the Practice?

"Head Coverings in Church", from El Shaddai

This article explains the point of view concerning "Head Coverings in Church Canon Law." Using the difference between wordings in the 1917 Code of Canon Law and the 1983 Code of Canon Law, reasoning from moral law and as a sign of subjugation, this article from EWTN goes on to explain why the church would "drop the practice of such a fitting sign of the natural order." Concluding:
While it is absolutely clear to me that there is no canonical or moral obligation for women to wear a head-covering in Church, women are certainly free to do so as a matter of personal devotion. They should, however, see it as a sign of subordination to God, as that better suits the liturgical context. Those who wear a covering or veil, and those who don't, should not judge the motives of the other, but leave each woman free in a matter that is clearly not of obligation.
