Sociology coursework research - Veiling Poll

Hello, I would appreciate it if you could fill in this poll to help me with my sociology coursework. Helen Watson said, in 1994, that: 'Imposing Western ideas, on Musilms and Muslim countries, has created a new, liberating meaning for veiling.' She added that many Muslim women voluntarily decided to regress to fundamentalism and wear a veil as a display of their cultural identity. She found that Muslim women agreed that veiling was liberating in the sense that women felt they could be free from sexual harrassment and judgement from the Western world. However, Helen Watson only studied three women and she made no attempt to find people who did not think so highly of the veil, so I am continuing her research to find out what people actually think about veiling. I hope that you can help me and spare a little of your time in answering the poll questions. Thank you.
