A Virginia woman accused Air France of getting her terminated from the job she held briefly at Dulles International Airport because of her religion.
“The hijab, to me, it’s empowerment,” 19-year-old Riham Osman said. “When people, men and women, talk to me, they’re looking at my personality, they’re listening to what I’m saying, they know that I stand for something.”
Osman is a proud Muslim from Herndon who wears a head scarf, or hijab, as a sign of her faith — a sign of her faith that she says got her fired from Air France. According to the copy of her contract she was hired by the staffing agency Aerotek to be a passenger service agent for Air France at Dulles. (Watch the clip.)
