Headscarves new target for Austrian far right
by Sylvia Westall
It's already been a big theme in Germany, France, Turkey and the Netherlands, and now the Austrian far right is asking: Should public employees be allowed to wear Muslim headscarves at work?
Two women have become the first schoolteachers in Vienna to wear headscarves while teaching.
One is also a local centre-left Social Democrat politician.
Teachers in other parts of the country already wear headscarves, and there is no law banning public employees from wearing such items as there is in some other European countries.
