Men cover their HEADS to show respect for the Almighty (Aramaic "yirah malka", which evolved into the Yiddish "yarmulka". Women cover their HAIR to avoid attracting the attention of men. (In numerous Middle East cultures demons would seduce men by means of women's hair.) So the rejection of hair covering by Orthodox women and the adoption of head covering by women who wear kippot are not mutually exclusive or at all contradictory. On the contrary.. Women who wear kippot are asserting their right to cover their heads not just in the same way, but for the same reason, that men do. Women who reject hair covering are rejecting an inferior gender role which regards women primarily as objects of men's desire. (It is interesting that the religious logic recommending or requiring that Muslim women cover their hair with chadors, hejabs and burkas is very much the same as that of Orthodox Jewish women wearing wigs and head scarves.)
