After reading multiple articles and viewing multiple videos explaining the situation I can’t help but come to the conclusion that it appears as though there isn’t just the issue of the ban at play. There seems to be a lot of women who wear the veils by choice because they want to and these are the women who are outraged by the new ban. There also seems to be a lot of women who like the ban because they believe that a lot of the women wearing veils do so because the are forced to. Although I do not know the statistics, if they exist, of how many Islamic women wear veils by choice versus how many are forced to wear it, but it appears as though the forcing of women to wear the veil is becoming more and more scarce. In this day and age women have a lot more power than in the past when it was easier for men to impose their restrictive opinions onto women’s rights. The law itself is rather silly in my opinion and more opinions of the people who the law will affect should have come into play. The claim that the law will give the women who are forced to wear their veils a reason not to wear them might be valid, but how many of the women who are wearing veils are doing so not by choice? If this number is greater than that of women who are wearing their veils by choice than maybe the law has validity for the reasons the french government claims, if not, which I personally assume to be the case, then the law is in fact taking more rights away from women rather than giving. Many people can make the argument that it is liberating women, but the statistics are needed for these sorts of claims.
