Behind the Veil

Our News 12 special report "Behind the Veil" takes a look at what it is like to live as a Muslim woman in Westchester.



With all the stories we report on Islamic extremists, like ISIS, how do local Muslims feel about what is being done in the name of religion? We take a look at the bias and the barriers Muslim women often encounter because of their attire.



We find out what the meaning of the "veil" is and why some women wear them and others don't.



Are your Muslim neighbors really that different? Go "Behind the Veil" with us today and find out, only on News 12.
