Fine, but when will they return the favor?

Reader comment on item: Hijabs on Western Public Women

Submitted by Serena (United Kingdom), Mar 23, 2008 at 18:29

It is fine to adjust one's dress to show respect for another's culture, but if Western women are donning hijabs when we visit Muslim countries and cultural events, then Middle Eastern women should remove their hijabs and wear miniskirts as a show of respect when they visit Western countries and cultural establishments.

What bothers me most is the one-sidedness. I see us having to do all the "respecting". Where is the respect and recognition for our way of life?
