In French Canada

It was inevitable for a burkini brouhaha to surface in Quebec. Coalition Avenir Québec MNA Nathalie Roy called for banning the burkini, which she said “has no place in Quebec, no place in Canada.” Saner voices have prevailed. Many Quebec politicians have dismissed this as a non-issue and have no desire to reignite the divisive rhetoric that emerged in the 2013 debate about the province’s proposed Charter of Values. As many point out, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees a woman the right to wear a burkini.

In Australia,
the designer of the original burkini, Aheda Zanetti, reports a sales increase of nearly 200 per cent since the French controversy began. She has also received messages of support from women worldwide. What is interesting is that roughly half of her customers are non-Muslims, including skin-cancer survivors and those with skin sensitive to the sun. And while the term “burkini” is a combination of burka (a tent-like cloth that covers the entire body, face and hands) and bikini, it resembles neither. Think of a wet suit – with a tunic.

The burkini is not a political project, but will become one if it is banned. As for enslavement, the last time I checked, feminism was about empowering women to make choices for themselves – free of coercion from the state. Burkini-clad women aren’t enslaved or political projects – they’re just women who are retaining their modesty while having fun by the pool or at the beach.

"It is indeed true that a picture is worth a thousand words.
The picture of armed police in Nice demanding a woman strip down is one apt representation of the status of women in the 21st century.


The fact remains that the rights and freedoms of women are still shaped and determined by male policymakers.
The centuries-old tradition of policing women continues, now under the garb of ‘security measures’ or countering religious oppression ."

"Apparently, states feel quite content in holding supreme authority when it comes to decision-making with regard to female fashion and lifestyle choices.
Burkini or no burkini, what they fail to realise is that the decision to wear less or more should always be a woman’s.
There is not a single legitimate policy consideration that can be classified as a reasonable qualification to this freedom so as to take that decision away from women."
