Abstract

In Indonesia, the jilbab question stands at the crossroads of several mutations related to religion, women’s status, economy, culture and politics. In the early 1990s, veiling was often a free and militant action that was part of the demand for reform that culminated in the fall of Suharto in 1998. This aspect of social rebellion was then exploited by a new islamist elite who instituted themselves as censors in a society wrapped in the virtue of religion. The unconventional dimension of the veiling was then overthrown and laid the foundations for a new conformism. Women were deprived of their own choices, but some have been able to divert the subordination to emerge as prominent politicians. This evolution constitutes a patent sign of the process of symbolic reappropriation of Western capitalism in a globalized society. - (GL)
