"Isn`t it amazing how similar orthodox Judaism and Islam are? Women must dress a certain way so that they are covered and modest." I know this is an attractive conclusion to jump to in Tikkunistan, but let's try not to get ahead of ourselves here. The article very clearly refers to ULTRA-Orthodox Jews. Not modern Orthodox, or traditional, or conservative, or reform, etc. But ultra-Orthodox, or Haredim. For sure, the Haredi women follow restrictions on clothing, but you can say the same thing about the "ultra" faction in any religion. Are all Christians judged because of the tradition of nuns to cover themselves and live a life of solitude? In Islam, the dress code for women is by far more pervasive and universal.
