When the French ban on the niqab was passed into law last year, two French students protested the ban by donning niqabs and hot pants to test the reaction of French authorities. The women, both students in their 20's, stomped around Paris targeting the administration buildings of French authorities, notably the immigration office.
The French niqab ban went into effect on 11 April 2011.
According to the Telegraph, the women call themselves the "Niqabitches" and one of them is muslim.
