I decided to research about the veil, which every women had to wear on their heads throughout the whole entire book. The first use of veils goes far back to the 13th century B.C in Assyria, a civilization, which has developed in the region. The place was between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. It was the Assyrian kings who had introduced the veils, to separate woman of honor, from slaves who were forbidden to wear veils. Over time, veils have developed independently among the elites of Greece, Byzantine Empire, Persia, and India. When Islam surfaced in the middle east in the first century, it suggested man and women to dress modestly, just like it shows on the book on page 75. However, now a days in some Muslim countries, wether or not to wear a veil is regarded as a woman's choice, in others, its a requirement. However, for some women in the Muslim world, the veil they wear is a symbol of oppression. For others, its a symbol of freedom. Veils have been worn in many cultures, but today they are associated mostly with Islam.
