Argument: Muslim women often wear head scarves to protest racism
"Banning the hijab". Workers Power. Feb 2004 - "Indeed, the wearing of the headscarf may also be, for many young women, a symbol of anti-racist pride, playing a similar role that pride plays in the fight for liberation among afro-caribbeans, lesbians and gay men. Certainly, socialists have something to say to these young women about Islam and women's oppression, but we should not denounce them for taking their first step opposing racism and imperialism's war on terror, let alone support their repression."
