They Say it better: Tawakul Karman (Noble Laurette, activist, journalist, "iron-woman")

When asked about her Hijab by Journalists and how it is not proportionate with her level of intellect and education, she replied:

“Man in the early times was almost naked, and as his intellect evolved he started wearing clothes. What I am today and what I’m wearing represents the highest level of thought and civilization that man has achieved, and is not regressive. It’s the removal of clothes again that is regressive back to ancient times”
– Noble Laurette from Yemen, Tawakul Karman
