Turkish army will allow women to wear headscarves with uniforms

On Wednesday Turkish defense officials said the country’s military will begin allowing women to wear headscarves with their uniforms, despite the country’s armed forces historically viewing themselves as secular institutions. As cited (Sputnik).
The scarves are to match the uniform, have no pattern, be worn under caps or berets, and cannot cover the face. Civilian personnel in the military were banned from wearing headscarves until November 2016.
