What emotions arise in YOU as you watch the video about Muslim women? I imagine some may see repression or intolerance. I see women who give no indication of objection or dissatisfaction with the way they are dressed. Many of the images remind me of typical scenes I saw with my own eyes while working in Saudi institutions. The dress is simply the accepted and expected way.
I believe it is up to each individual woman how she wishes to present herself.
