Abrahamic Religions<br />Abrahamic religions are those who claim Abraham as their Forefather.<br />3 main Abrahamic Religions<br />Judaism<br />Christianity<br />Islam<br />All three branches have many different factions and Sects<br />
Judaism<br />Four main Factions of Judaism<br />Hasidic<br />Orthodox<br />Conservative<br />Reform<br />Hasidic and Orthodox sects have much more restrictive cress codes than do the Conservative or Reform factions. <br />
Orthodox Jewish Dress Code<br />Chest covered to the neck<br />Arms covered past the elbows<br />Skirts 4” past the knee<br />Closed toe shoes with little to no heel<br />No tight clothes<br />Married women mush cover their hair with a scarf or a wig; only their husband is allowed to see their real hair. <br />Reform and conservative Jewish females are allowed much more freedom in their dress, and generally apply their own interpretation of modesty to their dress<br />
Christianity <br />Has many different factions and sects, all with their own rules regarding dress. <br />The more orthodox the sect, the more conservatively the woman is expected to dress. <br />Non-Orthodox Christians are, much like non-orthodox Jews, allowed to dress according to their own interpretation of modesty. <br />
Orthodox Christian Dress Code<br />Very similar to Jewish dress code<br />Chest covered to the neck<br />Upper arms covered past the elbow<br />Skirts past the knee<br />Low or no-heeled shoes<br />No tight-fitting clothes<br />While Christian women are not required to cover their hair, they can wear a lace prayer cap if they prefer<br />
Muslim<br />Arguably the strictest rules regarding dress<br />Amount of regulation of dress corresponds with how Orthodox the sect is <br />
Muslim Dress Code<br />Pants can be worn under a long shirt or skirt<br />Legs covered past the ankle<br />Arms covered past the elbows<br />Hair completely covered<br />Chest, neck, and ears covered<br />More orthodox sects may require women to cover their lower faces, leaving only their eyes exposed.<br />Other, even more strict sects, require women to completely cover their faces, using veils with built in pieces of mesh through which the woman can see. <br />
The Gilead<br />In a book written by Margaret Atwood, “The Handmaid’s Tale”, a group calling themselves the Gilead overthrow the American Government and enforce their extremist Christian values on the population<br />The book is a dystopian satire of exremist religious societies<br />The author makes reference to religious dress in how the Handmaid’s in her story are forced to dress<br />
Handmaid’s Dress Code<br />Very similar to how Catholic nuns used to dress prior to Vatican II. <br />Must wear red<br />Shapeless dress covers chest from the neck, all the way to the floor<br />Arms covered to the wrists<br />Wing-like Headress covers the hair and limits how much of the face can be seen by others <br />
Handmaid’s Dress Code<br />Imagine some-thing like this in Red<br />
