Banning the burkini??

This is indeed appalling.

This week, we heard the announcement by David Lisnard, Mayor of Cannes, that he is prohibiting access to the beach to anyone wearing inappropriate swimwear that does not “respect good customs and secularism”.

The article makes much of Western feminists’ silence.  I’d take the cause of this to be lack of awareness, since I had no idea till I read the article.
