‘Violation of the dignity of women’ Burkini-only day CANCELLED after major backlash

10 Aug

A group from Marseille, who were organising the event for September, said only women covered from their chest to their knees would be able to take part.

But Smile 13, which organised the event, said it had received insults and death threats, including bullets sent to them in the post from right-wing extremists, since it announced the plans.

Smile 13 is a women’s association for Arabs in Marseille, which has a population of around 220,000 Muslims.
