Hat tip to The Vineyard of the Saker.
An attractive woman walked the streets of New York City for five hours attired in a T-shirt, tight jeans and a cardigan. She was the target of constant unwanted remarks and propositions.
The same woman walked the streets of New York City for five hours in a hijab, traditional Muslim dress. She was ignored or treated with respect.
Modesty in dress is a good thing, not a bad thing.
