Allah the Almighty ordered women to cover up. "Woman," he said, "You are too beautiful a form. I will put upon you desires and emotions to make your journey through life more meaningful and they will help you be more faithful to your spouses and help you live your life together until death do you part."
In Islam, for men the eye (sight) is what increases sexual desires. For women, it's the feeling of touch.
To be a good Muslim and follower of Allah Almighty and to reduce this wickedness Allah has ordered all women to cover up, hide their sexuality. He ordered all men to stop touching women that weren't theirs. Family is okay, maybe, a father touching a daughters shoulders say, or his mothers but it's a no-no to touch a stranger in fear of stirring sexual desires in her and make her want to fornicate or be adulteress.
Quaran (33:55) - "It shall be no crime in them as to their fathers, or their sons, or their brother, or brother's sons, or their sister's sons which their hands touch, if they speak to them unveiled..."
Men and women in Islam really are not allowed to talk to one another in public, so nothing sexual can take place. Women are also encouraged to talk in a low voice, and not to click their heels when walking incase they bring attention to themselves. This can save a woman's life, Islamists believe, since it is assumed that woman carry the burden of responsibility of unlawful sexual encounters, meaning if they get raped, it's their fault.
In Islam, teenage boys and girls attend different schools. They look at our Western schools and mock us wondering how can teenage boys learn when girls are walking around half clothed. They believe all male psychological and emotional difficulties and insecurities are from girls dressing inappropriately during teenage years and make them grow up sexually deviant.
That is why Muslim woman stay covered. To stay pure, innocent and a virgin until marriage with no sex up until then. They believe a good, true man would be willing to die for a true and blessed angel, untouched, and veiled because if she is faithful to her God Allah Almighty, then she will be good for him and his family.
Quarn (33:59) - "Tell thy wives and thy daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks close round them..."
In Pakistan, uncovered women are routinely attacked with acid. In Iran they are put to death. It's all about the male in Islam.
