French President Nicolas Sarkozy declared earlier this year that the Islamic burqa was a symbol of subservience. In other incidents, two women were banned from swimming in Burqinis (a bathing suit that covers the whole body) in Paris and Verona, Italy. Attacks on what Muslim women wear seems to have intensified recently, and we want to hear what you think. Are these efforts to prevent Muslims from wearing certain articles of clothing in public acceptable or totally outrageous? Vote and let us know.
