PORTLAND, ME - APRIL 18: A group of Somali teenage girls cover their short skirts and tight jeans with long skirts in order to sneak out of their homes and attend an alcohol-free dance for minors at a dance club April 18, 2004 in Portland, Maine. Going to a dance dressed in western clothes and dancing with boys is strictly forbidden in many of the Muslim families in Maine. Muslim females in the United States straddle two cultures, as they are expected to uphold many of the customs and traditions of Islam in the face of western culture.
