    French court bans burkinis, doesn’t block city allowing topless women in public swim areas – By Timothy H.J. Nerozzi (FOX News) / June 22, 2022

    Court in France states that the religious nature of the burkini and its implication for women’s rights make it unfit for public areas

    France’s highest court ruled against “burkinis” at public swimming facilities on Tuesday, but did not crack down on public toplessness for women.

    France’s Council of State, the highest administrative court in the country, ruled that allowing the burkini swimwear — a full-length, modest swimsuit worn by Muslim women — would violate the nation’s secular governance and laws against religious influence.

    Not long after the ban was lifted, it was reinstated by Grenoble’s administrative tribunal. The Council of State’s decision on the issue has been anticipated for weeks. The burkini had previously been legalized by the city of Grenoble in May 2021, along with topless swimming, after outcry from residents.
