My Hijab Liberates Me From Your Oppressive Standards For Women

I see semi-clad women as representing a form of enslavement to a social structure that requires them to dress a certain way, be a certain size, have a certain type of hair. I think that your likes and dislikes are not governed by you. They are governed by your peers, the media and society in general. I see that as enslavement and I see you as enslaved to the idea of transient beauty and pleasure.
