Is the Burqa a men's issue?
A proposed new law in France to stop women wearing the Burkha in public would punish husbands more severely than their wives because the French government believes many women are forced to wear it by their husbands
Punishments for men could include one-year prison sentences and fines of up to $20,000, whereas women caught wearing the burqa would face a smaller fine of about $140 because the draft says they are
"often victims with no choice in the matter"
Earlier this year the French government refused to give a man citizenship because he forced his wife to wear a burqa.
Are the French right? Is the burqa a men's issue?
