Well that was totally scripted, bears no relation to the shuffling women dressed head to toe in black that I've seen in areas of the UK, let alone Saudi..they can't even go out on their own.
And of course, totally ignores my question, which was not about hijabs, it was about segregation and separate entrances, how is that empowering?
ETA I prefer to walk through the front door, with my head held high, and be accepted and welcomed into a place as an equal, that, to me, is empowerment.
The issue here is Islam's allowance of Privatisation of Female Sexuality .
The female sexuality used as a commodity and Islam allows women to have an opt out .
Separation and segregation of sexes are both designed to create an enviroment where the faithfull have no distractions and can focus on being one with God .
You may visit any muslim family and can see whole families preying together .
