Battling xenophobic and reactionary feminism in Quebec

This is a really excellent article (in French) concerning the opposition of the Conseil du statut de la femme (CSF) to the wearing of veils by Muslim women in Quebec. I've been keeping a real close eye on this debate, as it's quite disturbing to witness a stirring up of xenophobic and racist sentiment, all under the banner of feminism. No more or less than a pathetic spectacle of enlightened white women teaching those poor helpless brown women how to behave like civilized humans – like themselves, of course. I hope this blows up in their faces.

It's about time something of worth was published in Le Devoir, that sorry excuse for a Leftist paper.
