A burqa is a full-body garment that has only a mesh-like opening for the face, worn by some Muslim women.

It is intended to protect women from the gaze of men and men from the temptation of women.

It can also be a statement of faith and signify a withdrawal from the everyday world.

Although the burqa is not a legal requirement anywhere, some women wear it because their husbands or fathers command them to. On the other hand, some wear it by choice.
