BURKA WEARERS Bamboozled

"In the 21st century, the Islamic burka, the full-face-and-body veil, adopted by more women every day, has become the most potent human symbol on earth. But what exactly does it symbolize? Many say it stands for piety. No, that's wrong, says Marnia Lazreg, an Algerian-born professor of sociology at the City University of New York. Piety has little to do with it; the Koran doesn't even mention the veil.

In truth, the veil stands for political ideology and male power."

Hi there,

I was tuning back in to your blog to hear what you might have to say about S. Palin but found you haven't posted anything in a while. Just interested in your take on her and her book from a feminist/goddess perspective.

Thanks - hope you're gonna return

Hope you are OK?

Thanks for checking, Paul. I'm okay. I think writing Switching to Goddess took some of the starch out of me for a while. I'm slowly feeling like getting back to the blogging world, though. Lots of work to do yet!

Hey, anon,

I might just do a post on S. Palin and her new book at some point here in the near future.
