On Wednesday, junior inside clergyman Marlene Schiappa – who is responsible for citizenship and was already accountable for uniformity issues – visited the eastern city to talk about the security of ladies out in the open.
She disclosed to France Bleu Alsace that “the skirt isn’t liable for the assault and the lady even less”.

“At the point when you’re an understudy and you need to consider the outfit you need to wear and the message it sends, it’s a mind-boggling mental burden,” Ms Schiappa said.
She additionally encouraged individuals to call the police on the off chance that they saw any sort of road provocation occurrences against ladies in a public space.
