Learning to swim: For Muslim women in U.S., it's not easy

When fellow Muslim parents asked Salman Sheikh to organize a swim class for girls, he went to the Curran Aquatic Center in Cary, N.C., to see if it could accommodate a group of Muslims who preferred a women-only pool. No problem, leaders of the center said. But the pool could be seen onlookers and blinds on the windows would cost $3,000. Sheikh almost abandoned the idea.
