The veil and its relationship with women
How it's worn and why
In its simplest form, a veil is an article of clothing that is intended to cover some part of the head or face. Especially associated with women, veiling has been prominent in different forms in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and the practice has a long history in European, Asian, and African societies.
A veil can be worn in many different ways and for many different reasons. In some cultures it's used to cover parts of the body that are considered private. It can also be worn as part of a bridal ensemble, or designed as a fashion or ceremonial accessory.
