TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A Muslim woman from Tulsa whose legal case against clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch was decided by the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to dine with President Barack Obama at the White House in Washington, D.C.

Samantha Elauf is one of eight guests to be seated at the President’s Table Monday for an Iftar, a breaking of the fast at sunset in observance of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. It is the seventh Iftar hosted by the President, and according to a press release from the White House, this year’s dinner has a special focus on young leaders and women.

The U.S. Supreme Court sided with Elauf, who was not hired after she showed up to a job interview wearing a black headscarf in accordance with her religion.
