In August of 2013 a Minnesota Muslim woman was ticketed on traffic charges. She missed a court appearance, due to taking her daughter to the emergency room.  The judge issued a warrant for her arrest.

The woman turned herself in later to resolve the matter. She was arrested and booked into the jail. During the booking process she was forced to remove her Hijib in front of male jailers. Later she was stripped by female jailers and given a sheet to replace her traditional dress or abaya.

She was kept in a cell for 23 hours then was taken to court.  Her arrest warrant was resolved and she was released.

After studying at the county law library, the woman filed a federal law suit, on her own behalf.  After six years she won a $120,000 settlement.  Her booking photos, hard copy and digital, will be destroyed and the county has revised it's booking procedures involving religious garments.  Other counties around the state are also revising their procedures.  Hopefully this will happen nationwide too.

I applaud this strong woman for her fight on behalf of others and calling attention to the fact we need to respect the rights and beliefs of others.
