Nadia Gaber. "Why I Won’t Veil". The Harvard Crimson. November 17, 2006 - "There is obviously no universal reason women decide to veil, but most see it as a combination of fulfilling an explicit obligation to God and as a protection against the unsolicited gazes that I so vehemently loathed in Egypt this summer. Those who wear the hijab believe that in doing so, they literally wear modesty, humility, and purity on their sleeves. But the idea that any woman should have to limit her personal freedom in order to gain the ability to move through society unmolested is one that I will never fully understand."
