“Many girls also use the headscarf when meeting in public with their boyfriends, so family members would not recognize them. They can ride their bike with their boyfriends without being seen by their parents and harassed about it. Some girls even told me that when wearing the scarf they feel more confident in the indian traffic and even feel free to swear at other drivers (something an Indian woman would not normally dare to do).”
