I feel compelled to point out that in a recent article on Rep. Ilhan Omar, the wrong word was used to describe the Muslim article of attire worn by the congresswoman. Omar wears a hijab, not a burqa.

A hijab covers only the hair, or sometimes hair and neck and maybe the shoulders, while the burqa totally covers the woman's body, with only a mesh window for the eyes to see out.
