Hijab (The Headscarf) - Yes; The Burqa - No

I find it odd myself, since I've been reading articles, rants, websites, and etc. on Muslim headcovering for so long ... that so many people still do not understand what it is for, the difference in individual and even cultural reasoning, or the difference between protection of a valuable person and degredation based on some sort of deranged ownership idea (still, an individual differentiation, even within cultures and family units!). Here, another - and a feminist - writer attempts to explain.
