When I embraced Islam as my religion in 2004, the women at the mosque put a hijab on me. I never questioned my reasons for wearing it though. Until recently. I now realize that I never chose to wear it.
Religiosity and positive body image have been correlated in earlier studies. What made the Yarmouk University study remarkable is that, like most women in Jordan, those who participated in this study cover their hair and much of their skin whenever they leave the house.
