Honestly, I don't have anything against veiling. Until fairly recent times, it was the norm for women. In my youth, Central European immigrants would wear babushkas on the street. Nuns wore full habit (just like Sister Act). In church, for years, I wore a hat or the Jackie-Kennedy veil or mantilla.
I've had friends who wore various head-coverings, from religious sisters to Islamic women. Never bothered me. In fact, I envied their freedom to not fuss with their hair.
But, all that was voluntary. Today, in many Middle Eastern and European cities, a woman who is NOT veiled is a target - for rape, for the "smiley" (a scar that is used for unveiled women - a knife slice from the corner of the mouth to the ear), for whatever abuse roving groups of men chose to inflict on her.
