Current opinion is still against the habit.
But current opinion "leans to false." (Divine Comedy, Canto XIII of Paradise).
We laymen are for the habit and we support our sisters in this gift and mystery.
In the old days a sister was never allowed to walk alone in public.
"Before you take down a fence first ask why it was put up."
We have sisters we know in Rome who when they lived in London were chased by Muslim boys who spit on them and threatened their lives. Now they walk again in groups.
