ABC News published an article by Lydia Shelly titled “Pauline Hanson’s burka stunt disproved her point: you can safely wear a burka in Parliament”
Here’s an excerpt:
“When Pauline Hanson shrugged off her burka costume, revealing her smug face revelling in the attention, it barely caused a ripple in the lives of Australian Muslim women.
It was if amnesia had taken hold. Forgetting that Muslim women had long ago been boiled down to a reduction, a caricature of oppression.
That Muslim women had been fought over through the narratives of liberation, in the wars of culture, the lightning rod in the clash of civilisation debates.”
