Law Firm Hopes to Dispel Stereotypes About Muslim Women

Watan, Posted: Aug 06, 2008

CHICAGO A group of American Muslim women is forming the first Muslim women's law firm to stand up for the rights of Muslims and to clear misconceptions about Muslim women, reports Watan. Six Muslim women of the Amal Law Group offer legal services on civil rights, employment, criminal, family, real estate and immigration law. Some of the women are Shiites, some Sunnis, some wear hijab, but they are united in respecting each other's beliefs and ethnic and cultural origins. Since 2005, 1,200 cases of discrimination against Muslims have been reported in Chicago and the firm wants to address that issue.
