Sarah Wollaston, how about asking a woman who wears niqab what she thinks about her freedom? Or does her opinion does not matter?

Sarah Wollaston's tweets on 'offensive' Islamic veils

feminists should be allowed to say that they find the #niqab deeply offensive without being accused of being bigoted or islamophobic,

The niqab should be banned within schools & colleges; how on earth do they promote equality when they collude with making women invisible?

The niqab won't be banned in the UK because too many politicians will hide behind freedom; hiding women away is a perversion of freedom

The Totnes MP Sarah Wollaston says Islamic veils are an 'intolerable subjugation of women which should not be allowed to masquerade as freedom.'
