From the blogpost:

1. There's the straight Koranic origin for making women cover up. So they are recognized as Muslim women and Muslim men know not to rape them.
“O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies that they may thus be distinguished and not molested.” (Koran 33:59)
One Koranic commentary is quite explicit. “It is more likely that this way they may be recognized (as pious, free women), and may not be hurt (considered by mistake as roving slave girls.)” The Yazidi girls captured and raped by ISIS are an example of “roving slave girls” who can be assaulted by Muslim men.
Muslim rapists and their clerics have utilized the "She wasn't wearing a Hijab" defense in contemporary times in Western nations. Most notably in the Sydney gang rape case.
 Australia’s Grand Mufti, the infamous Sheikh Hilaly, had said, in response to a Muslim gang rape case, that in sexual matters, “it's 90 per cent the women's responsibility.”
Then the Grand Mufti went on to compare rape victims to uncovered meat. “If you take uncovered meat and put it on the street, on the pavement, in a garden, in a park or in the backyard, without a cover and the cats eat it, is it the fault of the cat or the uncovered meat? The uncovered meat is the problem.”
“If the woman is in her boudoir, in her house and if she's wearing the veil and if she shows modesty, disasters don't happen.”
Wear a Hijab or get raped. It's a simple Islamic message.
2. The coverings are a kind of mobile Purdah. A symbolic segregation that allows the woman to leave the house, instead of being confined to her room or the kitchen, but in which she is still segregated through the cloak or the veil.
3. Iran has its own wrinkle on the Hijab. And we are not just talking style or name. But the conviction that women's hair emits "sexual rays". This led to issues with airplanes flying over women who might have uncovered hair, even if the men couldn't see them, because the rays might be able to penetrate aircraft.
