"O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful."
(Surah Al-Ahzab : Verse 59)
Islam prescribe hijab to maintain the modesty of women, not to degrade them.
