2006-SEP-04: MI: County changed its pool policy to accommodate Muslim women: Jumanah Saadeh, 14, an Ann Arbor girl, is a Muslim and follows the teaching of Islam to cover her hair and the rest of her body when in public. During a field trip to the Rolling Hills Water Park in Ypsilanti, she wore nylon pants, a full-sleeve collared shirt, and her Hijab. She was ordered out of the pool for violating swimsuit policies. With support from her teacher, Muslim leaders and a civil rights attorney, she persuaded Washtenaw County to change its pool policy to accommodate Muslim women who want to cover themselves while swimming. Jumanah said:

"I felt humiliated and disappointed because I was denied an opportunity to have fun with my friends just because I'm Muslim. ... When a girl reaches a certain age, you have to treat your body like a jewel. You don't show it off."

According to Muslim leaders, this is the first case of its kind in Michigan, and perhaps the first in the U.S.
