Two French students have discovered a creative way to protest against the burqa ban in France — walking around the streets of Paris in a niqab, high heels and mini-shorts. (via Telegraph)

In an online video of their Parisian march, two veiled women walk by various government offices.  In one scene, a police officer actually asks to take a photo of them.


According to their Twitter feed they are “protesting against the  burqa ban.”

An earlier tweet states,”we are not promoting niqab but we are against this discriminating law.” Their original video, with the Beastie Boys, can be viewed on vimeo.
