This claim that Muslim women wear the oppressive types of dress voluntarily is a lie. Search the web, and you can find tons of articles about how these dress requirements are forced on Muslim women.
How many honor killings does it take to intimidate the women into following the dress requirement?
When the communities belief is that any woman who does not meet the dress standards is free game for gang rape, then the horrible rules of the community force women to wear these symbols of oppression.
When I see the man and the woman dressed in a manner that they are covered head to toe, I have respect.
When I see the woman covered from head to toe, while the man is dressed comfortably in a western style, then I see slavery, which is an assault on my beliefs.
ACT! for America Founder and President, Brigitte Gabriel delineates the disastrous effect Political Correctness is having on our leaders and citizens in the fight against Radical Islam in America. She lambastes its debilitating power to render government and the military impotent in fretting out those who wish us harm. She lays the killings at FT. Hood at the feet of the PC mentality world.
Girls as young as four are wearing the hijab to school: that is not a freely made choice. It stops them taking part in education and reaching their potential, and the idea that tiny children need to protect their modesty is abhorrent.
And behind the closed doors of some Muslim houses, countless young women are told to wear the hijab and the veil. These are the girls who are hidden away, they are not allowed to go to university or choose who they marry. In many cases, they are kept down by the threat of violence.
The burkha is the ultimate visual symbol of female oppression. It is the weapon of radical Muslim men who want to see Sharia law on Britain's streets, and would love women to be hidden, unseen and unheard. It is totally out of place in a civilised country.
Precisely because it is impossible to distinguish between the woman who is choosing to wear a burkha and the girl who has been forced to cover herself and live behind a veil, I believe it should be banned.

Wukky's political correctness would be laughable, if it wasn't so dangerous. It's his elitist multiculturalist attitude that is responsible for the failure to prevent Fort Hood.
Zilch might be a woman and a Muslim, but she doesn't speak for all Muslim women.
I am a nationalist and make no apologies for it. I am a believer in Language, Borders, and Culture. Without those three pillars a society will die. Anything that defies those three things in the host culture should be treated as a cancer and excised.
1. The General Assembly shall be the highest authority of the organization and all its resolutions and decisions made in a constitutionally valid meeting shall be final and mandatory upon the community, its officers, and its members.
2. The Majlis Al-Shura shall be the highest legislative authority in the absence of the General Assembly.
3. The Executive Committee shall hold at least monthly meetings and a majority of Executive Committee members shall constitute a quota. It is responsible for the day-to-day affairs of the community in accordance with the constitution.
My links are a direct link to the bylaws, written by them not me, and I have link just two communities bylaws each state or community has its own, but all are almost worded exactly the same way.
