“Lets get real about hijab for a second. I hear this from a lot of hijabis, and I totally disagree: “I see hijab as the freedom to regard my body as my own concern and as a way to secure personal liberty in a world that objectifies women. I refuse to see how a woman’s significance is rated according to her looks and the clothes she wears.”
Wearing hijab does not mean you will no longer be objectified. A woman’s significance (unfortunately) will be tied to how she looks, whether she wears hijab or not. Wear hijab (or not) because you believe this is what God requires of you (or doesnt), not because of a misguided belief that by doing so you can control how others perceive you"

The amount of women that get harassed and objectified while wearing hijab overseas is ridiculous that’s why I don’t get why people say that it stops any of that.
