French Prime Minister Cites Delacroix’s Bare-Breasted Marianne in ‘Burkini’ Debate


Süddeutsche Zeitung,Eugène Delacroix,Manuel Valls

France’s Prime Minister Manuel Valls has provoked an uproar in his country by citing Marianne, the symbol of the French Republic—and her bare breast—as justification for the ban of full-body swimsuits worn by some Muslim women. For weeks, women’s clothing has been at the center of an increasingly heated debate over the relationship between Islam and French culture, started after several seaside municipalities in France banned full-body swimwear known as “Burkinis.”
