Habib Ghribi is the first Tunisian woman to win an Olympic medal, but some say she's a 'shame' to her country. Religious groups condemned Ghribi over Facebook for her Olympic uniform, a tank top and running briefs, which they say does not cover enough of her body. In light of a constitutional amendment labeling Tunisian women as ‘complementary’ to men, many feel that the reactions to Ghribi are indicative of a larger socio-religious debate brewing in the country.
