    The hijab isn't the scarf that covers the face, though. That's the niqab. The hijab only covers the hair. I guess women wear it to fit in with their local culture, or because it looks pretty, or because it's a family tradition, or as an act of devotion to God, or to show other people that they're Muslims.

    Yeah, I know the hijab isn't a literal face-covering, but it does mean 'veil', as I understand it. And the issue is about all that kind of apparel, with 'hijab' standing in for all it. But yeah, point taken.
