This is what the colonizers, the officials of the French administration in Algeria, adopted as a strategy to destroy Algerian Muslim society:

"In order to destroy the structures of Algerian society and its capacity for resistance, [the administration] must, first of all, conquer the women; [they] must go and find them behind the veil where they hide themselves” (Frantz Fanon, “Algeria Unveiled” in Dying Colonialism, pp37-38)
