I was hoping to find some subtle differences in how they're worn... I guess it's a rhetorical question though... no you can't.
Can you tell the religion from the scarf?
You can in Glasgow
Thinking out of the box!!!
For some it is to do with local "laws" so you have to follow no matter which religion.
I worked in Saudi Arabia. My wife, who is a devout Catholic had to wear the Abaya (black cloak thing) and also had to wear a black scarf covering her hair. This was only n public.
Inside the compound, away from the public eye, she could wear a onesie if she liked (which she often did).
@stopwatch I have a friend who worked in ME , can't remember which country may be Saudi, and she was the same.
... you mean she wore a onesie?
Would a onesie not to too hot to wear in the middle east?
I spotted the odd one out!
Not in a nicely air conditioned apartment
Apart from Queenie are these women compelled to wear the scarf?
….particularly if made from silk rather than fleece.
I have a Boden scarf I'm quite fond of...
*misses the point
That's the point I was trying to make.
Some cover the face, some don't. That's a pretty big difference.
Another test is to see if they can take them off without men abusing them.
Which of the women of whatever religion are free to take off their scarf in public and not be harassed by other people for not wearing it?
And which are free to wear it in public places without fear of harassment?
Certainly all those living under a male theocracy. Women should be free to exchange their human rights for wearing a scarf.
The point is, which are allowed in the UK without fear of racism or prejudice.
