The only exceptions to a woman wearing a niqab in public will be if she is traveling in a private car or worshiping in a religious place.

I just saw a chart on how American students were ranked compared to other countries' students, and the only place the US scored first was on self esteem. The rest pretty much sucked, which I get confirmed over and over again from reading posts on this forum.

I am not French btw.
Could you please provide some documentation or links to the bolded statement?

Firstly, mainstream media sucks. It's all about hype, headlines and ratings.

Secondly, I just read another article claiming not that it's a security issue, but more of a social justice issue. How freakin' lame.

So is this a "security" issue or a "social justice" one???

"Given the damage it produces on those rules which allow the life in community, ensure the dignity of the person and equality between sexes, this practice, even if it is voluntary, cannot be tolerated in any public place," the French government said when it sent the measure to parliament in May.
Even some of their own government realizes that this is wrong.

The French Council of State has warned that the ban could be incompatible with international human rights laws and the country's own constitution. The council advises on laws, but the government is not required to follow its recommendations.
