Have you seen the new Egyptian channel called Maria where women must all wear the niqab and full Islamic veil to work there?
An Islamic ‘scholar’ says this is a ‘victory for women’.
Is anyone else finding absurd the contradiction of hiding women away in a mobile prison and then putting them on television for all to see?
The ‘scholar’ may package it any way he wants but clearly this is another attempt in ensuring that women know their place in Egyptian society.
It’s the Islamists, however, that need to know their place – somewhere in the dustbins of history…
