Most women who become nuns have a choice in whether or not they do so. Most Muslim women don't have a choice about being Muslim or leaving the faith.

CloudchaserS is correct. Women can CHOOSE to become a nun. Muslim women cannot choose not to wear the Hijab, unless they want to be brutaslly killed. Also, many nuns today do not wear the whimple, or head covering.
