Images of uniformed police appearing to require a woman to take off her tunic, and media accounts of similar incidents, have elicited shock and anger online this week.
In London, about 30 demonstrators threw a “wear what you want” beach party outside the French Embassy on Thursday to protest the bans.
Whatever the reason behind the ban, it doesn’t justify “men with weapons standing over a woman telling her what not to wear. That’s not a sight that any of us should stand for,” said demonstrator Jenny Dawkins, 40, a curate at All Saints Church in Peckham.
This is sometimes regarded as the last Cathar stronghold. In a sense it was. After the fall of the Château of Montségur in 1244 surviving Cathars gathered together here in another remote mountain-top stronghold on the border of Aragon. The Château of Quéribus was abandoned in 1255.
