Feminists line up against football veil ruling
by Matthew Warren
A number of feminist organisations have criticised a ruling by international football body FIFA that would allow female players to wear veils.
FIFA banned the wearing of veils in a 2007 ruling, citing safety concerns.
A decision in early March permitted the testing of specially designed head covering for four months. The new headscarves will be fastened with velcro rather than pins. A final decision will be taken on July 2nd.
