It is Not the cloth that oppresses, it is the illiterate mind
A piece of cloth.
How can it oppress?
How can it change a strong confident woman, in to a woman who is subjugated and subdued,
A woman with no identity, who is not seen and considered?
Of course it can’t.
What oppresses women is the minds who cannot understand that women are capable of making their own choices, that women are capable of making choices that are different to the ones that you would choose for yourself.
The mind that is unprepared to see out of it’s self imposed blinkers and understand other perspectives.
It is oppressive when people say women are so silly they cannot think for themselves, they are easily brainwashed, they are incapable of making decisions, someone is influencing them.
It is oppressive when people say women cannot choose for themselves, so we will choose for them.
I choose hijab.
Like if you do too!
