    Twitter user @LaSauvageJaune shared a drawing titled “The lottery of indecency”. It shows two halves of a woman, one dressed with a veil, a burkini, and a long skirt, and the other clothed only in a mini skirt. The captions illustrate how women are subjected to criticism for whatever they wear.
