Serhan: This is shifting gears a little bit, but there’s been a bit of coverage about Egypt’s female beach volleyball team at the Rio Olympics and their uniforms— Opponents say the bans are bigoted, in that they specifically target Muslim women, and will only further divide a nation reeling from violent incidents. Some French mayors have banned “burkinis” (sometimes spelled “burqinis”) from popular beaches. What are burkinis? Akou:. I’ve read accounts of how some customers buy the swimsuits for other reasons. On a personal level, I’ve noticed at the pool that there are an increasing number of people wearing rash-guard, UV-protective swimsuits. There’s definitely been an increase in people not just wearing your standard speedos and bikinis and one-pieces.

BURQINI ™ / BURKINI ™ Brand Story The BURQINI ™ / BURKINI ™ Brand Story

Akou: If [the Brooklyn pool] had been a private pool, I can’t see where it would have even been a media story in this country because in the U.S. there is such a high premium placed on business doing whatever they want. So if a private business wanted to have hours for only women and young boys, in the U.S., that’s not a problem. I don’t think anyone would think twice about that. I personally know people, groups of women, who have done the same thing. They’ll reserve time at the ice-skating rink or time at the pool on campus, and actually they go so they can swim without wearing Burqinis. They just wear regular one-piece and bikini swimsuits. And the idea is if no men are seeing you, you don’t have to worry about it and you can wear whatever you want. … I’d say, with the case in France, there’s some extreme behavior on both sides. From my perspective, it’s a private pool, so I don’t understand why the private owners of that business aren’t saying, ‘It’s our decision and we can deal with whatever customers we want to.’ Of course it’s also politicians’ right to make a big stink about it. But that doesn’t mean the business has to change their practice. Ritu Upadhyay (24 August 2016). "French burkini ban puzzles, upsets Muslim fashion designers". Los Angeles Times.

Why are we asking this now?

Some drew parallels between the burkini ban and the French ban of the Catholic soutane some 111 years earlier after the 1905 French law on the Separation of the Churches and the State. [44] Germany [ edit ]

In December 2018, the municipality of Koblenz, citing hygiene concerns, voted to ban the burkini in public swimming pools in 2018, with CDU, AfD and Freie Wähler councillors forming a majority for the decision. [45] Akou: From what I understand, “swimming costumes,” as they were called, really didn’t come until the Victorian era. When women would go swimming, there was no particular swimming outfit. Queen Victoria was really a key in making swimming costumes a part of everyday fashion because she decided that she wanted to go swimming but needed to be properly dressed. So her tailors came up with this full-body swimsuit that would allow her to go out into the water and swim just like other people. So the full-body swimsuits were really just like ordinary clothing. It wasn’t until the 1950s, that you really started to see the first one-piece swimsuits widely worn. In fact, in a lot of the world, it’s still not acceptable to go out into the water dressed like that. It’s kind of a uniquely North American, Australian, European thing.

Akou: The pool in New York was a case where they had already been offering segregated swimming for a long time, but someone complained about it and it was a municipally owned pool, so technically if it’s city-owned they really can’t be discriminating—it’s against U.S. law. And although you don’t typically think of men as a particularly protected class, certainly U.S. law is clear that you have to give everyone equal access regardless of sex, gender, age, etc. In 2016, a number of French municipalities banned the wearing of burkinis, which sparked international controversy and accusations of Islamophobia. The resulting publicity caused a significant increase in sales, especially sales to non-Muslims and to survivors of skin cancer. Before then, Zanetti's company had sold about 700,000 burkinis worldwide. [2] Creation of the burkini [ edit ] A burkini displayed on a mannequin in a museum at the Chemical Heritage Foundation. The exhibit highlights the use of polyester and spandex to create elastic clothing. The design of the burkini is intended to be in accord with the hijab. [11] However, what constitutes proper attire for women is a matter of debate in Islamic tradition, and differs by country and community. Some moderate Muslims accept the burqini as meeting a commonly applied standard that requires a woman to cover all parts of her body except her hands and face (including covering her hair) when in mixed company.

Human Rights Watch also criticized the ban, stating that it "actually amounts to banning women from the beach, in the middle of the summer, just because they wish to cover their bodies in public. It's almost a form of collective punishment against Muslim women for the actions of others." [43] Aktuell, S. W. R. "Demonstration gegen Burkini-Verbot". (in German).

Kroet, Cynthia (17 August 2016). "Manuel Valls: Burkini "not compatible" with French values". Politico Europe. As noted by professor of Dress Studies and Fashion Design Heather Marie Akou, arguments about the burkini (and other forms of female dress) are not just about a garment, but also about the symbolism, assumptions, and political implications projected onto it. [11] :26 Discussions of feminism, immigration, and secularism bring forth widely differing views of the burqini and other modesty swimwear. The burqini can be seen as a personal clothing choice, an indicator of women's subjugation, an enabler of women's increased physical freedom, or a militant and fundamentalist religious symbol that challenges a secularist state.
