66. In maybe the country of their origin. But you
Edited on Wed Aug-31-11 12:15 PM by Cleita
obviously don't know many muslim women in this country. They can choose to not wear them if they want to. I worked with many muslim women at UCLA. One student I knew only did when her family was around. Although her father expected her to wear a scarf, out of respect for him, she wore it leaving the house and took it off after her parents couldn't see her. She even dressed up in punk outfits when it suited her. She just didn't do it at home. How many of us have done the same thing. I know many American teenagers back in the day whose father forbade them to wear mini-skirts and other sexy clothes who left the house in demure gear and changed into mini-skirts and other fashionable clothing once they were out of the house. So really in America you don't have to and if a woman does, it's a choice.
