What do you wear to the beach? In parts of France, it's no longer your decision.
On our minds is France’s rejection of the burkini – the full-cover swim suit and activewear piece designed for women who chose to dress with modesty. Following the recent terrorist attacks in the country, 15 towns have now banned the garment, meaning that it is a “necessary, appropriate and proportionate” action to prevent public disorder. The news hit the headlines when police was confronting a woman wearing a burkini on the beach in Nice a few days back, fining her and seemingly making her remove a long-sleeved tunic. In response, burkini inventor Aheda Zanetti wrote an article published in The Guardian where she explains how she created the garment (which is popular also amongst non-Muslims) to give women freedom, not to take it away.
