Middle Eastern Women Choosing Their Own Clothing

This article from the Washington Post grabbed my attention, and I wanted to share it.

It shows how people in the Middle East currently view head coverings. The Pew Research Center conducted a poll in seven predominantly Muslim countries: Tunisia, Egypt, Turkey, Iraq, Lebanon, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia.

It was intriguing to see how people in each of those countries answered the question, “Which of these six styles of dress is most appropriate for women?” I was a little surprised to discover which of the countries were more conservative. It was also interesting to see how the same people answered a question about whether or not a woman should have the right to choose how she dresses.

The right to choose my own clothing is something that I often take for granted. I know that there will always be women who choose to wear head coverings, and I don’t see the point in trying to convince those women to give up clothing that is significant to them. (I wouldn’t try to convince a nun to stop covering her hair, either.) But I do hope that more and more women around the world will obtain the right to choose how they dress.
