L'Oréal Casts First Hijab Model In New Hair Product Promo

Beauty brands have become much more inclusive in recent years, expanding their reach to include those rarely targeted in broad campaigns.

Last October, US. Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney accused former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar of sexual abuse. While nearly 150 women have spoken out against Nassar in the months since Maroney first issued her statement, the gold-medalist had already settled her claim with the organization in December 2016, which included a $1.25 million payout.

But there's one caveat—the settlement Maroney signed with USA Gymnastics includes a non-disclosure agreement (NDA), which means the gymnast c…
