The future of many many women:
Via Daily Mail:
“French women who have been effectively banned from cafés and bars in certain ‘no-go’ suburbs in the country are fighting back.
Journalists and activists for TV channel France 2 went undercover in various communities with high Islamic populations in Paris to show how conservative Muslim men are enforcing social segregation in public spaces.
In the secret footage, activists Nadia Remand and Aliza Sayah from women’s rights campaign group La Brigade des Mères (Brigade of Mothers) enter a shop in Sevran: a commune in the northeastern suburbs of Paris.
‘The café terraces and the streets have something in common: women seem to have been erased,’ Journalist Caroline Sinz narrated:
The group was told by a customer in the shop: ‘It’s best to wait outside. There are men in here.’
Another said: ‘In this café, there is no diversity.’
Outraged, one of the activists asked the manager of the store what it would be like if he wanted to go to a café with a female relative who was denied entry.
‘My cousin stays at home,’ he said. ‘My cousin can do what she wants, but not with me.’
‘In this café, there is no mixing. We are in Sevran, not Paris. Here there is a different mentality. It is like back home,’ he added.
In Lyon, a city farther south, France 2 journalist Sinz spoke to a young woman who said she makes sure to be very careful in how she dresses.
She said she will often wear baggy clothes and no makeup to avoid being targeted by the Muslim men in the neighbourhood.
‘I’m afraid, simple as that,’ she said.”
