The battle between the veil and the miniskirt

Two opposing campaigns arguing about what women should wear are gripping the Arab world.

What makes a man? According to the people behind a campaign which apparently started in Algeria this week, “real men” take charge of what the women in their family wear – and they make sure females are covered up in public. The Facebook page “Be a man and don’t let your women out in revealing clothes” has attracted thousands of likes. On the page, men are sharing verses from the Quran and posting photos of their family members wearing conservative clothes. They argue that the Islamic hijab and other modest attire protects women from unwanted attention.

Here’s a quick link to All Mini Skirt FB page.
