Muslim woman claims Disney refused to let her wear hijab to work


Imane Boudlal alleges that when she turned up to work wearing her hijab she was told to remove it, work ‘backstage’ out of sight of customers or go home. The dispute dates back to 2010 when Boudlal, who worked at the Storyteller Café in Disney’s Grand California Hotel, learnt from her US citizenship exam that she could wear her hijab to work (left). She claims she was forced to wear the Disney-made bonnet (right) instead.
