France and the Hijab

On November 17, 2003, the President of the French Republic announced on TV that, having heard the report of the Stasi Commission that was appointed some months ago, he would propose a law on secularism that will forbid any sign of religious or political affiliation in schools and public administration.

In the web site of the WLUML (Women living under Muslim law) progressive Muslim women explain why they supported the law.
