Ironically, mainstream media did not hail Dalilah as a symbol of progress for Muslim women simply because she looked like every other woman in her event. Most reporters didnít know she was Muslim because she didnít look Muslim, i.e. she didnít cover her hair, arms or legs. And that seems like actual, real progress.

I was wondering if she was Muslim because of her last name when I was watching her at Rio.
