A survey of Muslim women throughout the Netherlands shows that most wearers of Islamic headscarves do so of their own free will.

Six out of ten Dutch Muslim women aged 15 to 35 wear the headscarf. Contrary to popular belief, the majority of them started wearing the scarf around the age of 19 and not when they were young girls. Only 16 percent of those surveyed started wearing the scarf when aged just 13 or 14.

The research marks the publication of a book on headscarves in the Netherlands and is designed to illustrate that many contemporary Dutch prejudices against the Islamic headscarf are unfounded.

One of the strongest preconceptions is the idea that the headscarf is the result of oppression. The facts and evidence of Muslim women themselves appear to contradict this assumption.

The survey indicates that, in more than half (53 percent) of the families where the mother wears the headscarf, not all the daughters (and sometimes only one) follow her lead and also wear the scarf.

The writer of this article makes an erroneous assumption that oppression must always be physical but there are other pressures that can make a person do something they wouldn't ordinarily do. One such pressure is culture; in islamic cultures a woman who exposes her hair is considered a slut. A muslima must always cover her awrah, which can be translated as "nakedness" but is defined as her entire body, except the face and hands. How can this article say that a woman chooses to cover herself in a shapeless bin-bag of cloth if the alternative is being gossiped about and potentially facing hell-fire in the hereafter?

In my town in the last couple of years the number muslimas in their black head-to-foots has shot up.

I tend to believe their claims of free choice. Saudi salafism gives them pride in their otherness, a pious barrier agin the infidel.

There is, apparently, the phenomena of wraith muslimas marching as a pack through Londons streets, owning the byeways, forcing other pedestrians out of the way! I try to make a point of not giving way when out and about, but lapse occasionally - my mother did a good job instilling manners!
