the coverup is almost always worse


In Afghanistan, women wear a burqa that covers their entire body, including their eyes behind a mesh screen.

But western Muslim women are getting their fashion on.

Muslims spent $266 billion on clothing in 2013, 
more than Japan and Italy combined.

So there’s money to be made and fashion houses are responding.

Once viewed as a patriarchic symbol of oppression, 
today’s Muslim woman embraces religious limitation but pushes boundaries on color and style.

Few believed we’d be seeing animal prints but now Oscar de la Renta, Tommy Hilfiger and Donna Karan are jumping in.

This week in Afghanistan, the Taliban was not impressed.

They’re still killing women who get an education.

Or host a broadcast.

Just wait until they get a load of this.
