Female students
A number of Turkish universities have defied a new law allowing women students to wear Islamic headscarves. I wish them luck. Suppression of women’s rights is common in many of the world’s major religions. I think most of these laws were invented purely by men trying to control their population and there is less than zero proof that they were inspired by supernatural powers. Therefore they are absurd.

Women are great surgeons, politicians, professors, and hundreds of other professions in societies where they are not suppressed by absurd laws. It takes time and patients to change old beliefs especially in areas where there is little or no education or news media.
