I find these outfits deeply disturbing on many levels. You don't know who is beneath them or what their reaction to you is. As a woman I am appalled by what they represent i.e. a culture where women and girls have no worth and are not allowed a life outside the home that is not monitored and controlled by male relations. There are parts of my home city which I will no longer visit but if I pass through, especially in hot weather, I am struck by the juxtaposition of the men in their traditional dress of cool white and the women completely covered in heat absorbing black. I cannot help but feel the roots of this lies in making the garments as uncomfortable as possible to deter the women from wanting to venture outside. There is no religious requirement for this mode of dress and full face coverings should be banned for all sorts of reasons.
How is your hand-writing these days?
