"Walking a Tightrope: Women and Veiling in the United Kingdom"

in UNITED KINGDOM, 15/01/2010

The book examines the ways in which public debates over the headscarf and the full-face veil have shaped the strategies of women from Muslim communities, strategies developed to deal with the limitations imposed on them in the name of religion, culture, tradition and identity within the community, and with racism and exclusion from mainstream society.
