A banned song dedicated to women

This song was supposedly banned from radio and press in 2010 in France. It's against dressing women in the "austere burqa" and a plea to stop perpetuating the Middle Ages for women.

French with English subtitles (translation isn't perfect but it gets the ideas across):
In French only:
Interview and performance in French with Pierre Perret (singer) :

When the women are caged / Quand la femme est grillagée
All women are outraged / Tout les femmes ont outragées
Men have banished them into obscurity / Les hommes les ont rejetees dans l'obscurité
