Veiling in the News

Posted on December 13, 2013 by


This collection of videos, articles and pictures has helped me create an analysis of why the veil is still such a big topic in the world today.Currently, there is a big discussion in Britain about veiling.Most of my thoughts about this topic will derive from British media.

I used Storify to organize the articles and videos and my analysis I have used and established to create this project.
