Some people may think that the veil is rudimentary and unnecessary but it is an affirmative act for Muslim women. “Veil of ignorance” is not a peer-reviewed article but it is an insightful article. The article is not written by a professional, and therefore, there are no experts in the field that examined the articlebefore its publication. A peer-reviewed article is an article that is reviewed by professionals in a particular field before it is published. The author references Albert Hourani’s article about the fast disappearance of the veiling practicein Arab societies. Initially, Leila shared the same thoughts as Albert, but some revelations have changed her view. She expresses her new perspective about hijab among Muslim women and its relevance to them. Before Leila saw the veil practice as a symbol of intolerance but she now considers it as a symbol of individuality and justice. In the article, the author seeks to offer the reader a new and informed perspective on the Muslim practice. The author proves her claim of how the veil resurged after initially thinking that it would be abandoned by the Muslim women. Her visit to Cambridge Common saw her witness a group of hijab-wearing Muslim women protesting for bringing back the veil to their society. In the 1960s, the practice declined as the Nasser regime was clearing the group of hijab-wearing Muslims.
