“To make one exception means to make them all.” - Clothing such as the Muslim headscarf, hijab, burqa... is a political cultural statement and informs adherence and respect for the ideological constructs attached to it which hold tragic consequences for women.
“To make one exception means to make them all.” The same Islamic Construct of Women informs both outcomes as it must - Own it.
"In the past 24 hours, the photos have gone viral. Young women standing tall and proud on the streets of Iran with their hair uncovered, defiantly waving their discarded headscarves on the end of sticks and in direct violation of the country's strict laws that force women to cover their hair.
"They are risking their liberty, they are also exposing themselves to torture and other ill treatment at the hands of police and other paramilitary forces in Iran that enforce compulsory veiling against women," Raha Bahraini, Amnesty international's researcher on Iran, who has been closely following the spread of the powerful protest images, said"

So importing more Iranians with the Muslim biology/culture ideology as the German socialist Minister (Katarina Barley) wants to do will reduce attacks on women? So importing more Afghans with the same Muslim biology/culture ideology having women kicked to death as infidels in the Afghan streets as the German socialist Minister (Katarina Barley) wants to do will reduce attacks on women?
If a Muslim biology/culture ideology informs behavior in one space how is it the exact same Muslim biology/culture ideology will not inform it in another even though they already are?

"As one Arab scholar observed, Muslim patriarchy considers female sexuality as extremely powerful but subversive to the social order (Mernissi, 1975). Women are taught from childhood that their sexuality is the inalienable and permanent property of the Hamula (extended family) rather than their own (Al-Krenawi & Graham, 1998). “Sexual purity and lineage honor are seen as inseparable” (Haj, 1992, p. 764, cited in Al-Krenawi & Graham, 2003), and a woman’s sexual identity is of concern to all. Awoman who is perceived to have strayed from the strict norms of sexual conduct, even if she is a victim of sexual abuse as a child, may be ostracized and even murdered to preserve family honor (Shalhoub-Kevorkian, 1999). Accordingly, women’s sexual integrity is maintained by ubiquitous forms of family and community surveillance and control."
"Indonesia's official Commission on Violence against Women reported that, as of August 2016, the number of discriminatory national and local regulations targeting women had risen to 422, from 389 at the end of 2015. They include local laws compelling women and girls to don the hijab, or headscarf, in schools, government offices, and public spaces. While many of these laws require traditional Sunni Muslim garb both for women and men, research by Human Rights Watch indicates they disproportionately target women.
A local bylaw implemented in August in Sumedang, West Java, forbids anyone with an “eye-catching appearance” from going out alone at night. The municipal government justified the regulation on the basis that it would help discourage sexual activity.
