The northern region of Liguria on Tuesday announced plans to ban the Islamic face veil from hospitals and other public institutions, in a bid to defend womens freedom.

Finally, some people who are TRULY protecting women’s rights. Any woman who doesn’t get nauseous at the sight of women in Muslim headgear has no right to call herself a feminist.

Send these jerks back to the Stone Age where they belong.
as a woman, I find those head coverings, burqas or whatever they are called EXTREMELY offensive. It is a symbol of extreme oppression to me. What I find very ironic, is that when I see one around here, they are wearing heavy makeup and tight clothes..... but OMG if they dare show their hair! WTF?
