A group of women dressed in traditional Tunisian veil, the safsari in anticipation of a wedding. The bride is covered with a golden veil (center) and the group is walking in streets, singing and making the Berber cry. The relationship of the Tunisian women maintain with the veil is very complex. Many have decided to wear it for the sake of cultural identity as much as religious reasons. Often, young Tunisian women wearing the hijab have strong personalities and are very awake. Regarding those of the photo, it is difficult to know if they wear it every day, because this was a bridal shower, and part of the ritual.
