The new law bans wearing face-covering veils in public buildings, such as schools, government offices and hospitals.
Denmark, following in the footsteps of several other European countries, seeks to target Muslim women for their religious convictions. A young female-led organisation seeks to change attitudes within Danish society.
In the event that Denmark adopts the ban on wearing the full face veil or niqab, it will become the second European country to have such a restriction. France was the first country to impose this ban in 2011.
The bill narrowly passes through the lower house of parliament. It still has to be approved by the upper house as well as the government before it becomes law.
