CAIR files U.S. Supreme Court brief in Oklahoma head scarf case | News OK

How many of these have there been? They're always suing over their head coverings. She'll probably sue for about 400 million, claiming they tried to interfere with her religious rights, she'll win, and won't have to work anywhere for the rest of her life.

I guess they just pick what parts of their religion they want to follow. Women wouldn't be allowed to sue under Sharia law.

She will lose. There are no religious rights.

I couldn't read the entire article, they website asked me to register. So I didn't bother.

I don't know the full story but I agree with Jess, every so often we get this law suit about discrimination (race, color, dress) its silly. Some are valid reason but majority are just young people thinking they can play the system.

I remember few years ago when my friends & I were all out of college looking for jobs. one of my friend over dinner complained how she couldn't find a job & its harder because she wears headscarf & people discriminate. I had to stop her & say "look around, all of our friends wear headscarf & 90% of us have been able to obtain good professional job with our headscarf. What makes you think you are specially targeted?". It really was her skill set that didn't allow her to get a job but its easier to blame on external features.

I though this issue was already settled. If the business can show that a "look" is essential to their marketing, they dont have to hire people who dont have the "look". In short, while businesses cant discrimiante agaisnt Jews, Moslems or Christians, neither Ambercombrie nor Hooters need to hire:

- Moslem women who wear head scarves
- Christian Amish women wearing "Little House on the Prairie" garb
- Orthodox Jewish guys wearing Jewish religous clothes from 17th Century Ukraine.

This girl didn't follow suit with Abercrombie's "look" in a sales model as they call them. Hey, at the age of 69 and slightly overweight with grey hair, I wouldn't either.

Maybe Abercrombie should start their own company religion which would prohibit women from wearing the Hijab.

Actually, I think all that is at stake here is a $20,000 fine to the woman awarded by the District Court, but invalidated by the Court of Appeals. Well, that and attorney's fees (like in the hundreds of thousands of dollars).

On the law, she wins. But I have a problem with the constitutionality of the law as a general matter.

Abercrombie needs to pay up and move forward. They can't have it both ways when they require their models to have diversity awareness, adaptability and flexibility per their own requirements of employees yet have none themselves.

She should have stayed in the woman-hating, savage middle east.

British Muslim woman working as a teacher's assistant in the UK (in a Church of England school - I happen to be against any faith schools ... but I digress), wanted to wear a niquab when working with a male colleague.
