Fort Carson soldier says hijab led to harassment, discrimination from superiors

Since she started wearing her hijab, a head cover, at work, she has been subjected to name-calling, increased personal inspections and has been demoted, she and her attorney, Mikey Weinstein of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation said.

> Weinstein said a federal lawsuit will be filed as soon as he determines whether it should originate in Colorado, where Fort Carson is located, or in Virginia where the Pentagon is. They also are looking into filing a complaint with the U.S. Civil Rights Commission.

> “It’s a scandalous outrage the way she’s been treated,” Weinstein said.
