I'm exploring a new song project for Hope Sings. It was inspired by a trip to Dubai, where I learned unexpected things about why Muslim women choose to cover.

Yes, men cover.

Yes, men cover.

I have no answers on this subject, just questions. We Western women tend to denounce the practice categorically. 

I think the conversation could be eye-opening, connection-creating and healing for both sides.

I just claimed a hashtag on twitter #covuncov. It's my first hashtag, hope I did it right. Hope you'll join me there.

More to follow.

Note: yes, men cover, too.
