In many Muslim countries the dress code, especially for women, is dictated by religious believes. Wearing a HIJAB – (headscarf) is followed by many women. I was surprised, visiting Egypt, to see so many young girls and women still following this custom.
In stark contrast – these young girls and women wore mostly jeans. Jeans being a modern-day garment must be the reason they avoided being censured by religion or the Quran – but they often make up for the modesty a Hijab imposes.
More from Egypt soon
