In my latest WIP, Pussycat Death Squad, my heroine is Muslimah. When she’s not in uniform, she wears a hijab and dresses modestly. I’ve been doing a lot of research in developing the character. One blogger commented that wearing the hijab is actually liberating. After all, where’s the freedom in being naked? (naked=dressed immodestly). Men want to see you naked. But if you’re covered, you control who gets to see your body, and who you will be sexual with. I thought this was an interesting point. We tend to think of Muslim women as oppressed because they wear the hijab and/or burqa, but are we actually the oppressed ones because anyone can see and sexualize us at will? What do you think?
