US first women-only 'mosque' opens in Los Angeles
The first women-only mosque in the US is causing controversy among the American Muslim community and beyond.
The Women's Mosque of America in Los Angeles holds prayers in a building that used to be a synagogue, but is now a multi-faith space.
Founder Hasna Maznavi told the BBC the intention was not to compete with other mosques, but to give women a place where they can "grow inspired and empowered".
