Restrictions on Women’s Religious Attire

Restrictions on Women’s Religious Attire. Pew Research Center. April 5, 2016.

In many countries around the world, women’s choices about their attire and appearance are restricted to some degree by government laws, policies or regulations. In recent years, most of these countries have had laws or policies that ban women from wearing religious attire in public places or limit their ability to do so in some circumstances. By comparison, far fewer countries require women to wear particular types of attire (such as headscarves or long dresses) for religious reasons. [Note: contains copyrighted material].
