A woman's right to wear Hijab
In Denmark the debate about the Muslim hijab has reached a new high.
Especially due to a very brave politician by the name of Asmaa Abdol-Hamid, the discussion of hijabs in public office and in court houses is raging.
It seems to me that women in feminist circles are much divided on this issue, and so am I. On one hand I completely follow the argument that a woman's right to wear a head-scarf for religious reasons is untouchable. On the other hand, many a feminist would call the hijab a very powerful symbol of the suppression of women.
Since we cannot know for sure which women put on the hijab for what reasons, what solutions could there be to a conflict of this kind?
