Why do mempn wear face coverings. I've never understood why that is for instance is it to cover up her bad breath or to conceal something otherwise erotic? Or was it just invented as part of an ancient Asian middle eastern style? answers appreciated

They cover themselves because modesty is highly valued in that culture and the only man who can see a woman without her headdress on is her husband. But I think fathers and brothers might be able to as well.
It's a lingering form of the sexist view of that area of the world. And call me what you want but sexism is still VERY much a part of middle eastern society.0
