Women respond to Melville

Following my rant about Kate Melville’s letter in last Saturday’s Guardian, two women (one Muslim, one probably not) respond in today’s paper:

Kate Melville weeps for the hijab- and niqab-wearing Muslim women who have no freedom of movement and step out into traffic because they can’t hear what’s going on around them. Presumably she weeps equally for the legions of women tottering around the streets in four-inch stiletto heels, pencil skirts and with headphones clamped to their ears?

(And that’s not even the Muslim response.)
