Sports Sports alliance calls for end to hijab ban in French basketball

London: France’s basketball authorities should overturn a ban on the hijab to allow equal access to women, the Sport and Rights Alliance has said.

In a letter signed by over 80 athletes and published on Friday, the alliance said restrictions on religious headwear in France are not in line with international standards.

Signatories of the letter, released on International Women’s Day, include US Women’s National Basketball Association star Breanna Stewart and US Olympic medal-winning fencer Ibitihaj Muhammad.
