“I believe that what a woman wears is a woman’s choice”

The British Prime Minister Theresa May today agreed with an MP who’d requested the PM’s agreement that woman are free to wear the hijab if they so desire.“On the issue that she raises about the wearing of the hijab, I’m absolutely in line with her: I believe that what a woman wears is a woman’s choice,” May told the House of Commons.”

The difference between niqab, hijab and burka is important as different countries in Europe have laws about the different headwear worn by Muslim women. In France the hijab is banned in public buildings like schools.
