Not from societal or religious pressure, not from exposing her body, not from anything. She'd be buck naked if we're going for realism. I think it would be an interesting spin on the fear thing.
Exactly what I was thinking. This would be what would make the female GL character interesting is her using her powers to fight against certain aspects of her culture. I would have had the character come from a very strict and conservative upbringing who would defy family's Muslim beliefs and was cast out-or better yet almost get killed by her family via honor killing. The ring would appear as she was about to be killed and she uses it to strike down her would be killers and take down her family for their actions. It would then spin to her to dealing with things like honor killings and violence against women as well as the usual super-villain threats like Sinestro, Atrocitus, Larfleeze and so on. So much could be done with this concept if anyone other than Didio could do it right and not mess it up.
