I confess that I don't understand why a strong and independent woman would want to cover her head, but I also find it inappropriate that we Americans (and others in the world) try to "free" women who may not welcome our interference. I think the key is "choice." Amanda has the choice to cover or not; in many places women do not. Women should be able to choose, or not, to adhere to tenets of Islam that we find uncomfortable or alien without coercion.
