BURNSVILLE, Minn. - A Muslim woman has become the first to compete in the Miss Minnesota USA pageant while fully clothed. Halima Aden made the semifinals of the competition over the weekend while wearing a hijab. CBS Minnesota reports she also wore a full-body outfit called a burkini during the swimsuit competition.

When HalimaAden took to the stage on the Miss Minnesota USA pageant wrapped in a burkini instead a bikini, she was the first to do so. The full body bathing suit, designed for Muslim women, was slim-fitting and charcoal blue, paired with a beige hijab. The 19-year-old Somali-American says she choses to wear the clothes and wanted to represent her culture in a positive light. Minnesota has the nation's largest Somali community and just elected the country's first Somali-American lawmaker.

LONDON -- A Somali-American teen has made history after she wore a burkini and a hijab when participating in the semifinal of the Miss Minnesota USA pageant.Halima Aden was met with rapturous applause when she stepped out on stage in a burkini during the swimsuit segment of the contest.

A burkini is a full-body wetsuit that covers the torso, limbs and head and is worn by some Muslim women. The garment became the centre of a controversial debate in France earlier this year, after officials in at least six towns on the Mediterranean coast banned women from wearing it on beaches.

"This pageant is so much more than just beauty. Their whole message is being confidently beautiful, so I didn't think that I should allow my hijab to get into the way of me participating," Aden said. "This is a great platform to show the world who I am ... just because I've never seen a woman wearing a burkini (in a pageant) it doesn't mean that I don't have to be the first."

A statement from Denise Wallace, Executive Co-Director of the Miss Minnesota USA pageant, said the company values inclusion and celebrates diversity and that Aden's burkini would be acceptable for the competition.

The burkini was at the centre of a standoff in several French seaside towns three years ago. Some towns banned the garment claiming it was a security threat, only to have the bans later overturned by a court.

Los Angeles: Boundary-breaking Muslim supermodel Halima Aden has made history once again by becoming the first model to wear a hijab and burkini in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, the media reported on Tuesday.

Halima Aden is a Somali-American fashion model. She is noted for being the first woman to wear a hijab in the Miss Minnesota USA pageant, where she was a semi-finalist.[2][3] Following her participation in the pageant, Halima received national attention and was signed to IMG Models.[4] She was also the first model to wear a hijab and burkini in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.[5]

In 2016, Aden received national media attention after competing in the Miss Minnesota USA pageant, she becoming the first contestant in the pageant to wear a burkini and a hijab. Some analysts saw this as a move towards diversification in the modeling industry.[9]

The scene was horrendous. Last week, at a beach in Nice, France, armed police officers forced a burkini-clad woman, almost certainly a Muslim, to remove the garment publicly. They were acting under municipal laws recently passed by a number of French sea-side towns. Mayors of some of these cities said that the aim of these laws was to protect secularism and public security. I never thought that achieving such a monumental goal would require mayoral insanity.

To be fair, I must mention that a French court has declared the burkini ban unconstitutional. Yet, it's unclear if this ruling applies just to one town or to all of France. And some mayors have vowed to continue to enforce the ban, the ruling notwithstanding. Moreover, France already has national anti-freedom laws that forbid citizens to display certain religious symbols and/or wear certain religious attires in public. So the burkini fiasco issue cuts to the bone of how France perceives freedom of expression.

But the problem is that Erdogan's motivation is religion, not freedom. Legislating on the basis of religion, whether you are doing it to uphold religion or protect secularism is wrong. Today's Turkey thinks that it would serve Islam by removing the hijab ban, and France thinks that it would aid secularism by statutorily disallowing women to wear burkini. But both these behaviors are anti-freedom, because one statutorily supports a religion while the other hinders it.

Probably, a woman in burkini is a bigger temptation for a man than a woman in a loose chador or burqa. Compare the three products to see what I mean. A woman who uses burkini probably harbors much higher cognizance of the fact that men's temptation issues are not, and should not be, women's problems. The burkini-clad woman still has a long way to go before she can teach men a concrete lesson in managing temptations, but at least she has taken a step forward.

Patrick Simon, an international migration and minorities expert at the French Institute for Demographic Studies, said the burkini debate was driving the impression that minorities, rather than the structure of French society, were the problem.

The burkini was invented about a decade ago by Australian designer Aheda Zanetti, who spotted a gap in the market for Islamic sportswear. Zanetti told AFP she was frustrated the word now had negative connotations.

Some stories are both provincial comedies and national tragedies, insignificant on the face of it and yet of much deeper importance than meets the eye. The strange fall and rise of the French burkini is one such story.

And yet, the judgment reveals a much wider tension that will shape Western societies long after we have forgotten all about the burkini. Because of a mix of economic anxiety, growing fears about terrorism, and an unwillingness to accept ethnic and religious minorities as true equals, illiberal passions are growing more intense in many democracies. The widespread French support for the burkini ban is only the latest in a string of similar findings: Across Europe and in the United States, majorities favor real restrictions on the religious liberties of unpopular minorities and are increasingly open to discriminatory immigration policies.

A brief ban of the swimsuit at some beaches, including Cannes, which a top court just overruled on Friday, led to a surge in demand for the full-body bathing attire. The burkini covers the entire body except the face, hands and feet, and is typically worn by Muslim women adhering to Islamic dress codes.

Aheda Zanetti, who's credited with inventing the burkini, says the French ban has caused sales of Ahiida, her Australia-based business, by about 90%. Zanetti said the mayor of Cannes has "done a very good thing for me."

Another brand, U.K.-based Modestly Active, told CNN Money that sales have increased 50% in the wake of the controversy. Fellow British retailer Marks & Spencer began stocking burkinis in its flagship store in London last year. The company has already sold out of the product for the summer. 041b061a72
