What’s really behind female inequality in American?

Jessica Valenti has opened my eyes to a deeper insight. Ms. Valenti described female oppression in America through physical abuse, sexual abuse and sexism in the workplace. As a Muslim woman who proudly observes hijab and interacts with men on strictly professional levels, I have been protected from these oppressive acts. The day women stop serving men merely as a commodity that comes in different hairstyles and makeup, their dream of equality will materialize.

How ironic that my hijab is looked upon as a tool of female oppression.
