In the 1970s, Feminism, and Muslim women, fought bitterly against the Hijab, which was not seen as a part of mainstream Islam but rather the uniform of a particularly repressive strain of Islamism.
Today, what does Feminism fight for?

I am not kidding. This is not a joke, or a parody. They want Feminist women to don the Hijab.
This was supposed to be a joke song. Instead, it's a fucking documentary.
Meanwhile, in Iran, Muslim women face beatings or worse for simply doing this:
Iranian actress Sadaf Taherian has published images of herself without hijab on her Instagram page in protest
She had to flee the country.
Islamists stone women to death for not wearing the hijab.

|Feminists frame opposition to Islamism as a fear of brown-skinned people|
- but the "brown-skinned people" are the ones getting skinned by Islamists.
|Opposing it isn't racist - supporting it because you think "Islam is a race"|
is what is killing these people.

Around that age, I was forced to wear the hijab. I vividly remember hating it so much because it meant I can no longer play outside.
I was beaten & slammed into the house steel door by my brother at the age of 13 in an attempt to force me wear the niqab. It was successful.
So please spare me the whole "hijab is a choice" crap! Because IT NEVER IS! Especially for women in the Middle East.
