So, face it: if one was not brought up in in an enviroment where the unfamiliarity of the specified dress code would cause one to question its validity, how would that be different than, say, the era of the Gibson girl or the Victorian age of demonstrable code of womens wear? Hiding the womenfolk became synonymus with hiding that which one cannot control. Does that equate with Islam's apparent inability to function in a modern environment without resorting to tactics that are meant to obfuscate the issues they were not able to control even when the Ottoman empire was the modern face of Muslim apologetics in a world that was shedding religious inhibitions? In this world where apostate religion of all sectors is running amok, In the final analysis, it is no longer about preserving the code of modesty, but it is more about maintaining control of that which one desires to conquer.
