The Highest Civilization

Tawakkul Karman. Photo found here 

“Man in the early times was almost naked, and as his intellect evolved he started wearing clothes. What I am today and what I’m wearing represents the highest level of thought and civilization that man has achieved, and is not regressive. It’s the removal of clothes again that is regressive back to ancient times” 

- Nobel laureate, Tawakkul Karman, in response to journalists who said her hijab was not proportionate with her level of intellect and education. 

P.S. She received the Nobel along with two Liberian women who also cover their hair :)
