calibro saidi like how a lot of people assume the burqa is an object of female oppression without asking the women themselves if they mind.
Yeah like asking prisoners whether they like the prison or not?
actually, many women who wear burqas do so happily. it's a question of your western ideals over their aesthetics. if you are raised to believe the burqa is as natural as wearing socks, it's not the extreme prison you think it is. you're totally disregarding that many women believe in the ideas of modesty behind the burqa
Obviously if you raise a kid in Prison without showing him the outside world his life will be that of a frog in the well. Its same with those women who have been raised in a conservative religiously dominated male centric society. Bring them to western world and show how many privileges they can enjoy and then ask how many of them are still ready to follow all those orthodox values ? I bet very small percentage and most of them will be due to the family pressure instead of their own accord.
I am from a conservative society where women are supposed to always think about her husband's interest over her own. She is suppose to be an ideal woman staying inside home cooking for his husband, taking care of children. But all of this are changing in bigger cities where educated women work and none of them advocate older orthodox values.
