‘Whenever I pointed out the difference between a forced and a democratic hijab, for instance, people were quick to frown upon my perspective. Hijab is a symbol of religious liberty when a woman chooses to wear it. But it can also very easily become a symbol of tyranny and oppression when the law dictates it to be mandatory. Yet the latter is unknown to many here — I strongly hope it stays this way — and the unknown is often deemed unimportant.’

In her wonderfully diplomatic way, Yale student Sude Yenilmez notes how moral relativism and political correctness drive indifference – even among the best and the brightest – to the suffering of millions of women all over the world.

Can she really be saying that her fellow students think global forced veiling is unimportant?

Well, yes. That is exactly what she’s saying.
