"Thoughtful [and] intelligent." The Times "This thought-provoking collection of essays goes far in moving the veil away from any singular interpretation or judgment." Daily Telegraph "Provie[s] a wide spectrum of views, traditions, feelings and issues related to the human practice of covering the head and hair." Bloomsbury Review "The approach chosen for this anthology-reflective, meditative broad, and under exclusively female authorship-is commendable and refreshing." Journal American Academy Of Religion/ Jaar "Groundbreaking." Wise (Women's Islamic Initiative In Spirituality And Equity) "A critical read for feminists and students of Women's Studies in the United States." Feminist Review
