Having been in Jordan and Egypt and seen the women in their chadors and hijabs, I still had no understanding of the reason for wearing them. . I’ve since learned that there are many customs, some relative to Islam, some related to a revolutionary stand against the West and others that are out of my grasp. I honor all of these women and embrace the need to not know why but to have solidarity with them as sisters.
