    Because the black color is not transparent and guaranty full coverage to protect the woman against any men 's harassment .The white color for men has no religious roots but rather a color which reflects the sun ray away from their body.

    I find it interesting that you did not mention how some orthodox women of the Jewish faith within Israel are wearing head to toe coverings as well, most often called burkas in the US.
