Chinese Female Muslim Imam Leads Women Of The Hui Minority

SANGPO, CHINA - JULY 11: Hui Muslim women study during Arabic lessons at the Qingzhenshang women's only Mosque on July 11, 2014 in Sangpo, Henan Province, China. As part of a tradition dating back to the late 19th century and unique to China's 10 million Hui Muslims female congregations are led by female Imams in the women's only mosques of northwest China. Though able to teach and lead prayers for women, they are forbidden from overseeing funeral rituals or washing male corpses before burial. (Photo by Kevin Frayer/Getty Images)
