|Col. Martha E. McSally, USAF (Ret)|
While on active duty Col. McSally, objected to being required to wear an abaya while off-base during her assignment to Saudi Arabia. She sued Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld about the policy in 2001, leading Congress to enact corrective legislation that, in her words, "prohibited anyone in the military from requiring or encouraging servicewomen to put on abayas in Saudi Arabia or to use taxpayers' money to buy them."
