The following video discusses what the Quran really says about the wearing of the hijab, and what 'hijab' really is. Samina Ali asserts that Islamic clerics have confused the letter of the word with the spirit of the word, and thus women have been suffering from what they were supposed to have been saved from, i.e. sexual abuse. Back in Muhammad's time, (free) women had freedoms, rights, and social norms that were not eclipsed by Western women until recently, if that.
