Women wearing Muslim veil and mini shorts

Women wearing Muslim veil and mini shorts

I initially found this video very amusing, because it appeared to be mocking Islamic misogyny. In reality, it's supposed to be a protest of the new French law banning the 'burkha,' which in this case is actually the niqab. Such behavior may have the opposite effect of what it is intended to do, however. Indeed, it may encourage the horrendously oppressed Saudi women, for example, to bare more, as they are already doing online for example.
