The head covering is for modesty. Look at the pictures of the immigrants from the 19th century. The women all cover their heads. It's hard to understand in our era but this used to be common.

As for the answer above that women are more spiritual than men, this is a myth that was made up to appease feminists. There are no Torah sources that say this.
