In the United States, a Muslim woman working as a restaurant hostess in Disneyland has filed a complaint with authorities after the theme park refused to let her serve customers in her Islamic head scarf.
In a news conference on Wednesday, the Moroccan born woman said her supervisors told her to remove the scarf, called a hijab, or work behind the scenes in the kitchen.
She said it is difficult for her to take off the scarf at work everyday. She said the United States is a country that respects human rights and questioned why Disneyland is not. Disneyland says it has dress codes for employees.
The woman has been working at the restaurant for 2 and a half years. She began wearing the scarf at the workplace after obtaining her US citizenship 2 months ago.
France, Germany, and Italy are among countries that have banned Islamic head scarves in public schools.
