3. I think choice is a big matter.
Having spent the majority of my life being too busy to bother with much primping, I still enjoyed the choice I had to get my hair done, put on makeup, perfume and jewelry, just to look pretty when the occasion arised. It was my choice.

I can actually see the advantages of wearing a sheet out in public. One can have a bad hair day, zits, bags under one's eyes from a sleepless night and no one has to see it. Also, if your husband beats you, no one has to see that either.

So, in all, I will always prefer to be enslaved by my Western customs than another woman's custom of purdah.
