Veiled Politics: Legitimating the Burqa Ban in the French Press

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper argues that mediated discourse in the French press contributed significantly to the passage of a law excluding the veil from being worn in public. The discourse in the press made the legislation appear reasonable and necessary because of its association with gender inequality and religious fundamentalism. This media narrative was couched in a defensive employment of laïcité and legitimated the political position by presenting the veil as intolerable and against public social order.
