Why do women wear the hijab (or don't)?

Fascinating declarations from women in seven countries.  They sincerely and insightfully explain why they do (or don't) wear the Muslim head scarf.

I heard the “it protects beautiful women from wide-eyed men” argument recently. Although it is a different view from what we usually believe in the West, it still doesn’t hold water. Men are perfectly capable of controlling their urges to gawk impolitely at women. Yes, even Muslim men.
