Although hijab refers to a physical barrier in the Qur’an, the contemporary use of hijab is interlinked with the concept of modesty (haya), piety (taqwa), and a marker of Muslim womanhood in general. Dress codes of modesty are complex practices, with differences between one’s internal perception and that of society.

What are the norms of modesty for different genders (including non-binary)? What are some internal motivations? What are the social benefits? What are the social pressures? How do people come to their own understandings?
