This law is a law that was passed by “a few likeable Republican men and women,” that bans headscarves from being worn by adolescent women in schools or public places. Badiou adamantly disagrees with this law, and I support his arguments in this essay whole-heartedly. His arguments are edgy, and ones I had not thought of before.
