In fact, this image of a Muslim woman holding her husband and they clearly have a great understanding As for the veil is obligatory for every Muslim woman is imposed by God in order to cover up her body to him but not her husband Intr In this chastity and honor her as well as save for the rest of bakacad of sedition and the perception of no man's land which is forbidden by God Must know what each person is and what it and not to commit sins and the sins and the sins and this is known in all religions for

[...] A few weeks back Hariman made the important point that “shrouds” can work in multiple rhetorical registers, masks that can both restrict and enable agency, sometimes at the same time. Yesterday, President Bush spoke before the Greater Cleveland Partnership, a private sector economic development group. Towards the end of the speech he turned his attention to questions of the war, and on the issue of whether or not to withdraw troops he noted that we should not make any decisions until General Petraeus can give his “assessment of the strategy.” And then this: “That’s what the American people expect. They expect for military people to come back and tell us how the military operations are going.” Now clearly the President is not paying attention to the public opinion polls (like so many Senators who supported his policy two months ago and now seem to be jumping ship with thoughts of the next election dancing in their heads), but what about the media? How do they frame the public here? [...]

"In the second, social acceptance and personal happiness comes tied to a reassertion of patriarchy, which now acquires new significance as the male bears the weight of the social gaze." Yeah, right... that wonderful male bearing all that significant social weight for the woman. She must be so happy that he is there, bareheaded to the world!

I think this garb would be even more alarming in the USA, as it calls up connections, for me at least, to the Klan, who also are fully robed with only eye slits. PS: Great new blog, congrats!

[...] I believe that there are even more intentions involved in interpretive education, but those are for another time. For now, suffice it to say that others have thought science communication through to depths that I can only stand in awe of. And furthermore, that the most effective communication is often that which I am weakest at, the most succint. [...]

I like Randall's suggestion that the image of the woman under the veil could be "giving us an image of the possibility of anonymity in public, a sort of long-lost liberal dream." That may be part of the image's complex mixture of transgression and appeal. For a related example, go back to the first photo: note how the veiled woman is holding a newspaper, symbol of the public use of reason in the republic of letters. She is at once not public (veiled) and yet explicitly aligned with the most legitimate form of the public media. By contrast, again, look at the woman beside her: the liberated, Western woman is not reading but rather defined by consumption as she is holding a large purse and caught in the act of eating. Worse yet, she's eating an apple: like Eve, she chomps on forbidden fruit.
