Abstract: The Islamic headscarf, which has been the subject of intense debates in various Western countries in recent years, has brought the principle of secularism to light, raising once again questions about the appropriate role of the state towards religion. This religious way of dressing, although protected in the context of religious freedom, is currently subject to restrictions in a secular country such as France. The case differs in the United States, another secular country in which Muslim women are instead allowed to wear the religious dress of their choice either in the public or private domain. The present dissertation aims to understand the particular attitude held by France and the United States towards religious clothing. With a focus on the issue of the Islamic headscarf, a detailed examination of this issue is carried out, thanks to which the opportunity is given to make a critical analysis of the secular models in question.
