France’s Ban on Muslim Veil’s Will Imprison Women in Their Own Homes

Commenter from Metafilter:

Most importantly though, those of you supporting this law seem to think that the consequences will be thousands of liberated women and girls shopping, working, and enjoying themselves proudly barefaced, with all the other French women. What’s more likely is that thousands of women will now be sequestered at home, unable to leave their houses, because they cannot wear a veil in public according to the law, but they cannot NOT wear a veil in public according to their faith. This is not a law in favour of women’s rights, this takes away their rights to choose their clothing, to follow their religion, and ultimately restricts their movement to an abusive degree.
