Philosophy of Hijab

Q:

Why do we wear hijab? is it written in quran we must wear it at age 9 ? i have heard its to protect your self… but at this day and age we are in a safe environment and i think we should be allowed to start when we think we are ready for the popover of religion.. (aged 16) as many people are muslim yet don’t wear hijab and are very protected and good people at heart
