"French MPs vote in favour of banning burka
French MPs have passed a law banning Islamic face veils from public areas amid warnings it poses constitutional problems and risks being overturned in the courts."
France24 expands on this:
"French lawmakers have approved a controversial draft law that would ban face-covering Islamic veils from being worn in public spaces. The bill will now go to the French Senate, which is expected to approve it in September."
Liberty vs secularism vs. multi-culturalism vs assilimaltion vs.feminism vs.cultural preservation/freedom.
It's all in there (and there's only one of these that I'm not usually too keen on...). I know that French-Sikhs there are worried that they and their turbans are next in France.
Expect a blog-shower on the subject. I shall catch up later - back to cooking dinner for the family (who said feminism is dead...)
