Dear Jan:

I wonder why there is opposition to headscarfs, I don't see why this should be a problem. Most countries don't want the face covered to identify people on their drivers licenses, or to identify them when going through an airport, but headscarfs only cover the hair right. I don't like it that any woman no matter what her religion should be denied rights and freedom. That is why the United States has always been a free country, We are given our rights by God, not the Government, or a Dictatorial regime. Many women have been denied simple freedoms in other countries, and you are right this is Called Oppression.
