This phrase has probably been around for a while, but it is new to me.

This morning I was at an interfaith meeting, chaired by the senior local iman.  One of the speakers was from Homeland Security (he was definitely NOT a Trump believer) and he gave a talk on what was being done about hate crimes.  In the talk several times he referred to women who for religious reasons kept their heads covered as "women of cover".
