I haven't ever had any real contact with Muslim women (although I have with men oddly) and honestly thought they were very conservative due to the way they dress. While at the mall dd was playing in the play land area with another kid. The girl's mom was Muslim and in full dress with scarf coverings long skirt and stuff. I smiled and said hello and introduced myself, and then we talked while the kids played for at least an hour! I was really excited, she was so sweet, she was still learning English, and so friendly we talked about her family, her home country, and just everything.
I don't know why, but I always thought that Muslim women in full dress were not very out going and friendly... Or maybe I just thought they were unapproachable? It wasn't intentional and I have nothing against Muslims as I am friends with several Muslim men, I've just never known a Muslim woman. IDK, but I'm so glad to have met her and I'm so glad that any stereotype I had (unintentional) was completely blown away. We have plans to get together next week :)
Do you have any Muslim Women friends?
