Muslim Women’s Views on Dress Code and the Hijaab: Some Issues for Education

By Stephen Bigger

Abstract

Recent French and Turkish bans on Muslim women wearing Islamic head coverings in schools,colleges and universities starts this discussion of religious discrimination and the necessity of interreligious open dialogue in which neither side holds entrenched positions. The paper examines ethnographically and explains the varied attitudes of Muslim women for and against their traditional dress code. It locates this issue in the critical educational concern for equity and argues for open and honest dialogue to help the next generation tackle global insecurities
