Burqa

I guess this passage is extracted from some article aobut Muslim in Afghanistan. A burqa is a piece of cloth which worn by women in this country to cover their bodies from head to toe. It's translucent so that women can see through without being unveiled. The lady in the passage refused to wear a burqa can be perceived as an action of feminism.
