Women in Egypt have the freedom to wear the veil now. Amazing! I think the timing is interesting as now many will think that the veil was imposed, and never realize that these women fought for their right to wear the veil for years in court.

I remember watching the news and asking my husband why women in Egyptian news did not and he told me they weren't allowed. I believe the same thing is happening on certain stations in Saudi Arabia, of all places. While the veil isn't mandatory there legally, it is ubiquitous socially and has been made defacto mandatory in most of life there. However, at least some of their news stations don't allow it.
