Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You don't have to go back very far in time in the West to find examples where women were expected to wear hats, gloves, long sleeves, etc. in formal situations. It's amusing that some people think they can instantly drag the MIddle East (or anywhere else) out of, say, 1300 AD into taking a 2012 urban Western moral viewpoint--when much of rural America and, I presume, Europe, has views closer to 1300 than 2012.
