TAKING ON THE VEIL

Interview with Danielle Crittenden who did an “under-cover” experiment into multicultural intimidation by wearing a full burka for 1 week in Washington DC! and then wrote about her experiences. One of the most interesting things I learnt was that wearing a burka is a MODERN invention of piety.  In other words – it is a modern invention that only recently became part of attire for devout Muslin women.   This seems very odd.    Why did this happen?
