The release of the “Burkini,” a full body bathing suit, has come under harsh criticism from France’s women’s rights minister Laurence Rossignol, who likened women who wear them to “negroes who supported slavery.” Critics of the swimwear have called Marks and Spencer “irresponsible” for allowing the sale in France. France recently banned the full veil in public on security grounds and because the garment doesn’t reflect the values of the republic. Jo Ankier and Mark Sovel discuss France’s response to the Burkini on the Lip News.
