Posted on 01/11/2014 2:57:40 PM PST by nickcarraway
An important issue in the Muslim world is how women should dress in public. A recent survey from the University of Michigans Institute for Social Research conducted in seven Muslim-majority countries (Tunisia, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Turkey), finds that most people prefer that a woman completely cover her hair, but not necessarily her face. Only in Turkey and Lebanon do more than one-in-four think it is appropriate for a woman to not cover her head at all in public.
The survey treated the question of womens dress as a visual preference. Each respondent was given a card depicting six styles of womens headdress and asked to choose the woman most appropriately outfitted for a public place. Although no labels were included on the card, the styles ranged from a fully-hooded burqa (woman #1) and niqab (#2) to the less conservative hijab (women #4 and #5). There was also the option of a woman wearing no head covering of any type.

No Miley Cyrus pic?
Eventually, all Americans will be required to travel on airplanes in the nude because of Arab bombs. Only Arabs will be covered head to foot.
Islam: The REAL war on women.
Those naughty Saudis want to see eyes.
The shoe bomber and others were Muslim, but not Arab.
Anyone else surprised that Lebanon is less strict than Turkey.
i’m still trying to figure out what business is it of the u of Michigan why or how people dress in another country.
The look lady #5 is rocking is very attractive.
Afghanistan is 99.8% muslim but it didn’t make the list? And they thought the Afghan chadiri was chic.
I’m not. After WWII, Lebanon actually entered the civilized world — briefly.
Yeah, but with Hezbollah running around, you’d think they’d have become more fundamentalist. Then again, Sunnis are different to Shiites.
That’s a Nurse? There goes my blood pressure!
Alopecia is such a pretty name for a girl.
I think most of us in this country simply wish women would dress in public, period.
You mean something other than tank tops, low-rise jeans, and a thong for Church?
They should dress with at LEAST a .38/9mm or a .45.
So they can shoot critics.
They want them covered because the men can’t handle the competition.
In public, the bottom. In my room....
At least none of them are covered head-to-toe in a tent with wee viewport.
4 or 5 is what I see around here at Walmart or the library. In the winter many are heavily bundled up, but in the summer, Pakistani women look beautiful in their salwar-khameez and scarves like #5.
Between my clothes and my pack of sons, they often give me the eye to see if I’m Islamic, but I usually have a cross on. My scarf is to keep warm!
In Oklahoma, I’d see women like #2 whose husbands from Arabia were studying petroleum engineering at OU.
Every woman - young or old, thin or fat, 9 months pregnant - looks good in those Korean dresses. We should all wear them ... just bring up the hems a few inches so they don’t trail in the mud.
Is #3 the bomb magnet lady?
No. There are many Christians in Lebanon.

The number of Christians in Lebanon has been disputed for many years. There has been no official census in Lebanon since 1932. But official records confirm that in 1926 when the state of Lebanon was officially announced and recognised by the allies the Christians formed 84% of the population. Many argue over the percentage and population of Christians in Lebanon. One estimate of the Christian share of Lebanon’s population as of the late 2000s is 39%. The country has the largest percentage of Christians of all the Middle Eastern nations.
How can you even tell the gender of this apparation? Or the identity? For all you know, it’s a terrorist who borrowed one of these turquoise drop cloths to murder patients and staff.
Does it come with kim chi?
That’s good news, but from the decreasing numbers, you can tell that Egypt is not the only area of the ME where Christians are being pushed out.
I like sauerkraut, but the kimchee I’ve had was just too powerful for me.
Muslim men can’t deal with their urges, so take it out on women. They treat women worse than any other group on planet earth. “Honor” killings, genital mutilation, child marriages to old men. The women in the Muslim world need to stick together and put an end to this abuse.
These boys are dressed for business.
