From the Independent:

Mecca Laa Laa,20,one of the newly graduated lifeguards,said it would give Australian Muslim women the freedom to enjoy the beach while fulfilling their religious obligations. “The point is to get women active in the water, to encourage them to participate in sporting activities … and wearing the burqini allows them to do that,” she said.

From the Salon‘s Catherine Price:

On the other hand, it still bothers me that women should have to hide their entire bodies in public.

You and me both, Ms. Price.
