Subject: My opinion

I am a spanish woman, that has traveled to many Muslims countries. I have that confess and agree that from all of them Turkey is the most liberal. I agree that Turkish woman are more free, although man's control over women is still there. But this is common in almost all countries whatever the religion. What I see myself is that woman feels very protected and respected by man in all the muslims countries. And it is also curious that they feel well, that they like to have their hair and even thir face covered. In many places like for example Turkey, it is a beautiful way of respect and love for her man, and just for him. I have to say that I understand them, whenever she is free to choose.
