What Female Oppression Really Looks Like Summed Up in Photo | The Federalist Papers

What Female Oppression Really Looks Like Summed Up in Photo | The Federalist Papers:

"Muslim women in many countries in the Middle East are mandated to wear hijabs and are harshly punished for not complying. In fact, Muslim women in America, such as Asra Q. Nomani and Hala Arafa, have begged Western women to stop wearing the head covering as sign of “resistance” or “solidarity.”

“In the name of ‘interfaith,’ these well-intentioned Americans are getting duped by the agenda of Muslims who argue that a woman’s honor lies in her ‘chastity’ and unwittingly pushing a platform to put a hijab on every woman,” the duo wrote in The Washington Post. “Please do this instead: Do not wear a headscarf in ‘solidarity’ with the ideology that most silences us, equating our bodies with ‘honor.’ Stand with us instead with moral courage against the ideology of Islamism that demands we cover our hair.”
Their request was clearly ignored by Western feminists on Saturday."
