Thanks Sarah, shes great. Loved it.
Check out what the women were wearing pre 1979.
I say wear whatever you want on your head as long as you HAVE A CHOICE.Masha al-Lah
I like the hijab look for aesthetic reasons and I respect women who FREELY want to cover themselves in that manner.
Yes that's the whole point of posting this, its not an objection to women feeling empowered by wearing such things. As long as they don't risk being arrested/tortured/stoned to death and seen as fair game for rape if they unveil. None of those being empowering positions to be in.
I lived up the road from one of the first Mosques in the UK, the stories of abuse against women in the Islamic community were despicable. One day I fronted up and spoke to the local Imam who ensured me much was being done to educate its members that the true message of Islam was that of peace and respect toward women.
That was the early 90s, about the time that the acid attacks started. The English were seriously worried back then and unfortunately things haven't improved in the UK and Europe since that time. While I know the whole situation has been engineered at the top the reality is women and girls in the UK and Europe are now living under similar threats to those in extreme Islamic countries.
This letter by Ella Hill (pseudonym), a survivor of the Rotherham Muslim Pedophile Grooming Gang describes the mentality behind the Muslim extremists view that white girls are asking for it because they don't cover their bodies as Muslim women do.
And now history is repeating itself in Finland.
I don't want to post hundreds of European migrant rape stories here, its a job for another day and really just too grim. But I do want people to understand theres a massive problem being covered up here, one that was finely orchestrated to take away the rights and freedoms of Western women along with our Eastern counterparts.
Im waiting for the Muslim MeToo movement to take off, now that would be a serious game changer.

Then late last year, on 31 October, nine years after Asia’s arrest, Ashiq’s prayers were finally answered.
Against the expectations of thousands of conservative Muslims, the country’s Supreme Court overturned the earlier verdict because of a lack of evidence and allowed Asia Bibi to walk free.
Within hours, outraged by the landmark ruling, demonstrators took to the streets demanding one thing - that Asia Bibi be put to death.
Just this morning after spraying tobacco weed, hubby said, 'u wanna come to town with me?' I said, 'hang on, I'll change into a nice pretty frock' then quickly changed my mind and said, 'nah i'll go in my faded denim shorts and wear an old singlet that won't look so outa place'...so there u go folks, I dress down to not be noticed.

Al-Hiraj school in Birmingham (U.K.) is still segregating boys and girls despite a Court of Appeal ruing in 2017 that found it unlawful, according to Luke Tryl, director of corporate strategy at Ofsted.
Addressing the women and equalities select committee, he said that "Ofsted Inspectors are trying to hold schools accountable for discriminating against girls but feel isolated when their stance is not backed up by ministers."
Mr Tyrl said that "Al-Hiraj school was enforcing a very strict gender segregation which included denying the girls to have their lunch until the boys had theirs. And we had some very discriminatory texts for instance, encouraging violence against women."
Heres some background on how global Islamic extremism was originally created through an orchestrated alliance between the CIA, the Pakistani and Iranian Intelligence services (and probably others). Some comment that the current situation was an unfortunate backlash but honestly this is hows its always rolled at the top.
The problem-reaction-solution war machine.
They never wanted us ladies to have be truly liberated and despite what people say about women running the world right now its just a ruse. We may have female figureheads but most are women acting to suppress other womens rights on behalf of the hidden hand, who would never entertain such a thing as equality. (This has nothing to do with Feminism, another intelligence agency construct).
Why not a "World Hijab Day"?Suits me.World's most barbaric regime is one of US' closest allies and heads the UNHRC,Womens' Rights Council:https://r.search.yahoo.com/_ylt=Awr9IlIFOVhcmokA8CpXNyoA;_ylu=X3oDM...

"WASHINGTON WELCOMES U.N. DECISION TO APPOINT SAUDI ARABIA AS CHAIR OF U.N. HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL"
What could possibly go wrong!!! Maybe they want us to all stone each other to death so they dont have to bother with the whole depopulation drama?
In the list of death penalty crimes in Saudi Arabia I see apostasy gets you there along with sedition, adultery, sorcery and drug related crimes. Well that's about 90% of us Westerners gone.
A note for the unknowing, "apostasy" is anyone who rejects the faith. In many countries (including Saudi Arabia) theres no out.
