In Response To: Why Muslim women wear the veil (BBC)

quoted from above:-But it may also be left to the Muslim woman to decide for herself, whether she wants to cover up fully with the niqab, as an expression of her faith and Islamic identity, or not.

There is no such thing as letting women decide for themselves. When they are told it is their Islamic duty then they have no choice.
It is the majority of men that stare at women so I am proposing that the men should be put in blinkers, like the ones put on donkeys. Problem solved!
