shadowhive Posted April 17, 2011 #276 Share Posted April 17, 2011 Now that could have been easily investigated deeply and researched before the law curtailing peoples freedom and liberties was enacted hastily and with prejudice Then they should do so and make sure the women aren't being coerced to lie when asked. All the women I know wear the veil out of their free will. They encourage other people including men women and children to be modest dont tell lies dont steal etc etc. Its just what they decide to do. Good for them. But to me (and many other people) the veil is a symbol of female oppression, doneso out of a sense of 'modesty' which is vasly over the top and unecessary. As a percentage in France they appear to be a small miniscule minority. Compared to that there are many more nuns out there in france. Nuns do not cover their faces and (now anyway) all nuns choose to become nuns. Thusly, comparing the two groups is 100% pointless. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
