Again, you distort the truth for ideology. I don’t know anyone, and I’ve never read, or heard anything from the left that says any religious garb is empowering for women. I’ve heard it said that restricting a woman’s right to wear it disempowers women, as much as forcing a woman to wear it. This is another way the anti-Islam Klan are more like extremist Muslims than they care to admit. Constantly looking to strip rights from women.
