I found this very informative! Thank you so much for all your research. I’m re-blogging if you don’t mind. To quote Benny Hill “Not a lot of people know this!” – and they should…
Last month I told one of my readers I would chronicle women in Islam from the mid-20th century to the present.
It is deplorable that people under the age of 35 will not have known anything other than the Muslim women’s attire we see today.
For them and for readers who have forgotten the swift trajectory from the modern to the mediaeval, below are links to illuminating photographs from several Muslim countries.
It is painful to read that an increasing number of American Christians are moving in the same direction — backward — with regard to women’s opportunities and attire. I read of arranged marriages, daughters deprived of university, veiled women at church and wives who buy burkinis. These people — not sect members, by the way — isolate themselves and associate only with their own kind because the rest of us, frankly, just aren’t good enough!
Stop the madness!
