I think about this issue a great deal, especially given my background as a practicing Muslim. Back then, I believed that covering up was an escape from and a way to rebel against Western beauty norms. I now think that deferring to any sexist norms for their own sake, be they Islamic or American, is a bad idea, but there's always that question nagging the back of my mind: How much of what we do is really based on choice/agency?
