Air Force Servicewomen No Longer Required to Wear Muslim "Abaya"

Lt. Col. Martha McSally is a decorated pilot with the U.S. Air Force stationed in Saudi Arabia and a Christian. McSally objected to the military policy requiring all servicewomen to wear a Muslim abaya when off base. The abaya is a head-to-toe black Muslim robe, worn as a sign of a woman's subordination to men. As a result of a lawsuit by McSally and the Rutherford Institute, Congress enacted legislation prohibiting the military from requiring the wearing of the abaya.
