“Unveil the girls and educate the boys”, say Belgian protesters

In a protest in Brussels, demonstrators called on Francophone authorities to ban religious symbols from public schools, using the slogan “Unveil the girls and educate the boys”: according to one of the advocates of a headscarf ban, Karima, there is huge social pressure in schools to wear a headscarf, as “Those who don’t wear a headscarf are cursed at and accused of not being religious or of being a prostitute.”
