About This Book

"What people need to understand is that the hijab can be both liberating and oppressive, depending on the situation and context. The problem is not the hijab per se, but the social conditions that compel a woman into or out of her hijab. Muslim women, hijabi or not, in considering whether the hijab is compulsory in Islam, must agree that their common enemy is disingenuous men who insist on telling women what to wear. How could a person who was only taught that orchids are white make a meaningful choice between white orchids and orchids of other colours? How could a person who was never taught that orchids of other colours even exist, make a choice for other-coloured orchids at all?"
