The Muslim headscarf: France's Republican dilemma


This week, we’re putting the focus on a recurrent and touchy issue that has once again made headlines in France: the Muslim headscarf. The debate about the Muslim headscarf returned to the spotlight after footage spread online of a far-right official angrily opposing the presence of woman wearing a headscarf at a regional council meeting. The woman in question was chaperoning her son’s class during a school trip.  The chaos that ensued has sparked a heated debate on islamophobia, women’s rights, sectarianism, inclusivity and the rule of law.
