The motivating reasons behind the decision of Muslim women to wear the burqa, while including the desire for modesty, are various and fairly complicated, as I suggested in my earlier post "on veiling." In Yvonne Haddad's research on the topic, they included reasons she categorized as "religious," "psychological," "political," "revolutionary," "economic," "cultural," "demographic," "practical," and "domestic." Please see: http://www.religiousleftlaw.com/2010/04/to-veil-or-not-to-veil.html

Best wishes,

Patrick, thanks for referring us back to your earlier post which I read
and appreciated at the time, but had apparently tucked into the
recesses of my mind. In addition to the fine content, the bibliography
is very useful.
