Athletic Muslim girls in Minneapolis found their traditional clothing interfered with playing sports. Their solution: design their own sports attire that met both religious and physical requirements. "We actually focus on the basketball instead of our scarves," says Zubeda Chaffee, 14, basketball team member. Around the world, sportswear for Muslim women and girls is coming into its own through both opportunity and controversy.
