I know Catholic women (like me) were once expected to cover their heads when they went to Mass, but practically nobody does that anymore. I think headscarves are so beautiful and feminine...just wanted to let y'all Muslim and Orthodox Jewish gals know that, contrary to thinking headcoverings are oppressive, some of us Western Christian ladies are even jealous of them!

Hindu women also cover their heads - and Indian muslim women sometimes go uncovered.
