“When..an attempt is made to coerce women out of the burqa rather than creating a situation in which a woman can choose what she wishes to do, it’s not about liberating her, but about unclothing her...Coercing a woman out of a burqa is as bad as coercing her in2 one. Viewing gender in this way, shorn of social, political & economic context, makes it an issue of identity..It is what allowed the US government to use western feminist groups as moral cover when it invaded Afghanistan” ~Arundhati…
