'OITNB' Adds a Muslim Woman to Its Cast & Becomes More Diverse Than Ever

For a show that's known for featuring a wide range of diverse characters, it comes to no surprise that Litchfield Penitentiary's newest inmate is of Muslim faith. Alison Abdullah joins our favorite band of badass female prisoners for the newest season of OITNB. What's important about her presence on the show is that her identity doesn't revolve around her religion.

Of course, the topic of religion comes up—especially given the fact that her bunkmate, Black Cindy, converted to Judaism in season three. But her major moments showcase her as an individual. For example, during the season, she goes off on a male prison guard for neglecting to provide the women with maxi pads and tampons as she argues they're essentials. Yas, girl. And kudos to the minds behind the show who continue to make OITNB one of the most groundbreakingly diverse ones in the industry.
