    The West has a problem with Muslim Women, their choice in clothing, their modesty and purity. The West wants Muslim women to become promiscuous and prostitutes.

    No. The West (whatever that is) wants Muslim women to be able to wear whatever they want, not what their fathers, brothers, husbands want them to wear.

    You're so ignorant, I'm a western reverted Muslim, single when I became a Muslim, covered, and who are you to pretend I'm oppressed by a man? I cover myself because of God, not for men, and I've the right to wear as I want in my own land. The problem is you wants us hidden

    WHY is it anyone's business what a woman wants to wear swimming??? I cannot fathom why people care. Women had been made miserable for years by having to wear tiny little, unflattering suits~LADIES LET'S ALL WEAR THE BURKINI AS A PROTEST! IT'S UP TO YOU LADIES, WEAR WHAT YOU WANT!

    The day muslim ladies can gon top-less in Saudi beaches i'll agree with you. Meanwhile, i can't think of it in terms of freedom, but submission.

    Look, all I am saying is that if it is in someone's culture to cover up, AND THAT IS WHAT THEY PREFER, Then let them wear what they want. WHY DO YOU CARE? It isn't your business what a woman wears to the beach.

    Would you be saying the same if men in this country tried to pawn off forcing women to be basically fully clothed when they swim as a culture? I don’t care what people wear but let’s not pretend that these women aren’t being oppressed by men

    In Muslim culture the hijab is precisely a symbol of freedom. In a society where women must be unseen, the hijab allows them to leave the house.
    Men here wouldn't ask women to cover up because its not part of our culture. Our culture tells women to shave and wear heels 🤷‍♂️

    Asking anyone to wear a full body bathing suit to swim in when it’s 90 degrees out isn’t a symbol of freedom. Don’t let your “wholeness” get in the way of rational thinking.

    Demanding that women do a full day's work in heels (a requirement in many British organisations - look into it) isn't a symbol of freedom either. What annoys me is western men patting themselves on the back, thinking that kind of bullshit never goes on here.

    This isn't about secularism really as it is about women emancipation.
    Defenders of hijab would like to claim it is a religious garb but the underlying principle involved is not the worship of God like in the case of Yarmulkes with Jewish men but rather the subjugation of women.

    The hijab is the hallmark of backward societies where men's uncontrollable lust requires women to bear the cost, hiding their features as if in shame.
    It is also a symbol of possession, as if to say this woman belongs to her husband and no other man may look upon her.

    The tyrannical nature of peer and family pressure in Muslim communities comes to bear on these women, their only hope for emancipation is to be set free by society.

    You could choose to interpret it that way.

    Here's another way: https://youtu.be/t1x5Zu18f7U

    No dears! @theEconomist. Equality between men and women is indeed clashing with sectarian oppressive prescriptions. Just inquire, instead of being judgemental. Or is it too much asking?

    If this was about equality between men and women they would be banning men fron wearing religious political dress. The fact that dress laws are targeted at women is itself sexism in action.

    Factual and logical fallacies: Men are not wearing religious clothes in the French swimming pools and public services. The laws are targeted at women's dress because the religious (sectarian in this case) prescriptions themselves target women ONLY.
