Imane Boudlal was given compromises and different positions with Disneyland where she could wear what she wanted ("OC Now: Muslim worker taken off Disney's schedule," Aug. 25). Instead, she refused and did so very visibly in front of her entourage consisting of videographers, photographers and reporters.
Disney has a costume policy. She knew this when she accepted the position. She has one of two purposes here: To make a statement by forcing Disney to submit to her unreasonable demands or to receive a sizable judgment from Disney for her "pain and suffering."
I strongly support religious freedom. I also support common sense.
Common sense dictates that Boudlal has an underlying agenda. According to recent articles, she "requested" a change from Disney's strict dress code, a dress code that is part of Disney's dress and hiring policy. It sounds more to me like a demand and a threat, and that threat is now in the form of a discrimination complaint/lawsuit that she has brought against Disney.
