Walking A Tightrope: Women And Veiling In The United Kingdom

The first evidence-based book in the United Kingdom on the issue of Muslim women’s dress codes, the purpose of this study was to document the experiences and analyse the implications of veiling practices for women living in a multicultural society.

Walking a Tightrope: Women and Veiling in the United Kingdom by Ayesha Salma Kariapper examines the ways in which public debates over the headscarf and the full-face veil have shaped the strategies of women from Muslim communities, strategies developed to deal with the limitations imposed on them in the name of religion, culture, tradition and identity within the community, and with racism and exclusion from mainstream society.
