Muslim Woman Sues Disneyland for Headscarf Ban

A Muslim employee at Disneyland is suing the California theme park for telling her not to wear a hijab while she was dealing with customers.

Imane Boudal, 26, had asked if it was OK to wear the headscarf while working as a hostess.

Leigh Shelton, a spokesman for the Unite Here Local 11 union, said Disney initially ignored and then declined the request.

She added: ‘Disney further advised Boudlal that if she refused to remove her hijab, she could either work a back-of-the-house position where any customers would not see her, or else go home.’
