All very good except the hijab one.

The choice is not on whether to wear, but on the belief they should wear. Thus they chose to believe that a version of Islam commands then to cover themselves up, otherwise its a sin. Of which those who do, believe if they do not, they will sin. Hence it will be a fear of a hell fire within Islam that is driving them to believe the command they must cover up.

Nobody is saying she should be stripped of wearing the hijab, but to open her eyes and see how wrong it is, that fear is driving her to believe she is commanded to wear. Believing it is a sin not to cover up wearing the hijab. All of this is taught and made to make them believe they should through a fear. In order to believe some command written down 1400 years ago.

That she understands, that if this Allah existed. Where the claims is that she must cover up, to stop the sexual advances of men. Knowing full well, it does not deter men at all. As for example rapists, will rape any woman they choose as a victim, no matter how they are dressed. Which will do nothing to prevent them the sexual advances of men and from being sexually abused or raped.

Should lead her to the following conclusions.

Either the deity she believers in created a flaw in men unknowingly. A flaw that has some men rape and sexually abuse women. Making this god utterly incompetent, in-creating such a flaw unknowingly. Where even worse. Is then blaming the woman for this flaw, for how beautiful this deity created them. By then ordering them to cover up. Claiming this will prevent the sexual advances. Even though this actually does nothing to prevent the sexual advances of men.

Or this deity created men deliberately flawed. Knowing full well, some will rape some of them anyway. (pure evil). To then yet again blame women, for the beauty this deity has created themselves and command them to cover up. Knowing again, that this command will do nothing to deter the sexual advances of men. Thus playing a rather sick game with Muslim women. Fooling them to believe it will stop men, when it never will.

Where to top this off, they are led to believe its a sin if they do no wear and will face punishments for sinning.

Thus showing how the Hijab is nothing more than born from the beliefs of men, in order to control women. Clearly not born from a supposed all loving God. 

So you will forgive me if I do not see the Hijab as a symbol of free expression or the empowerment of women, but the control and oppression of them.

Especially where many of their Muslims sisters are forced to wear

Some of them will be empowering to women I'm sure.
But the makeup and hair ones.......I'm not sure who has ever made women feel inferior because they don't wear makeup or dye their hair once they start going grey.
In my experience women have always chosen their own style without criticism from others....my best mate seldom wears make up , other friends either go grey or not....unlike my namesake in the cartoon I do, she doesn't...so what?

Its like everyone needs comforting, in the things women have always took for granted and never needed anyones approval for.

Hair and makeup shouldn't need approval from anyone else...or tattoos for that matter.

Rape and abortion are obviously more concerning for women.

I've never heard any women being criticised for not wearing make up. I've heard them criticised for wearing too much make up though.

Usually by other women.
I think women are very critical of one another sometimes.

That's what I was thinking.   It's like...how many times do people have to spread their bleeding heart shite over the  media and in meme's?    The majority of women in this country do as they damn well please, wear what they want and don't give a shit about what men think or anyone else.

When I was a kid women wore turbans to hide a bad hair day...or even cover their rollers up. Laughing

Maybe it was the artwork that really attracted you Eddie, as i know you love that kind of art.

I see nothing wrong with trying to empower women through messages. Just think it could have been done better over the wording.

I thought they were good. the tattoo one is a bit outdated, they really need more 'it's ok if you don't want a tattoo' ones

I like the artwork...I draw like that.
Real talent is to draw the way HT does....so a drawing looks like a photograph, that's way out of my talent zone. Sad

Eddie, you are a very baffling woman. Twisted Evil
I imagine in life you do as you please without much thought of what others think of you....yet you like this little hand holding message for women who seem to need permission to go grey or not wear make up.

Yes. I am a baffling woman. Not the first time I've been told that.
