Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
at least the women who have to wear burqas
Yes, the people who are involved would have a more valid opinion, though it seems that quite often when they are asked their opinions are discounted as being inadmissible since they are by definition oppressed.
Well, I did post a comment about such women (though not all such women)
We can look at Libération, too. Ni Putes Ni Soumises demonstrates in favour of the burqa ban in front of the PS headquarters because the PS is too ambiguous for their liking.
However, the discussion in that diary appears to be on the whole more about the French PS than about muslim women in France.
