"France is arresting women who wear a burqa or niqab in public ... and it is doing so in the name of 'liberating' those arrested. The burqa (a robe covering women from head to toe) and the niqab (a veil covering the lower face) are illegal because they are deemed to be instruments of the male Islamic oppression of women. Or is it because they are symbols of fundamentalist Islam?" (04/22/11)
