They stipulated that I had to wear ferace so that I could attend school

I grew up in a very conservative family as a girl with 5 brothers. When I finished secondary school, they brought a headscarf requirement to go to high school, and I had to accept it. When high school was over, they told me that I have to wear a surcoat for the university, and I accepted it. I entered the university with a high degree, but 1 semester after I enrolled, they stipulated that I had to wear ferace1 so that I could attend school. I was unemployed for 1.5 years after college, and I took off the headscarf as I found my job. They still don’t know.
