Thrown off Training for Wearing Headscarf
A woman who was forced off a state-run training program because she wore a long headscarf has now won damages from Stockholm's local authority.
The training course was aimed at leading to work as a cleaner. But when the woman arrived for the start of teaching, in April 2008, she was told that employers would not accept her clothing - and she was struck off the course.
