    The suffering of Muslim women is far greater than the suffering of women and man.
    They are oppressed, held like slaves for men in some parts of the world
    not allowed out without a escort
    expected to not have a job in most Islamic countries
    Not allowed to drive in a certain part of the world.
    and many of your high up priests or whatnots allow this and advocate this
    And much of it is put off as "oh we are protecting them"
    Why do you feel the need to explain or discuss? The numbers are facts. Everything else is Muslims defending their culture (how surprising). Exception confirms the rule.
    Only Muslims willing to convert to modern civilization (i.e. women have basic human rights) should be allowed into any Western country, just like you would be punished for discriminating against black people (and invent a religion for it).
    Muslims, your religion is so backward that even oil won't save it for long.

    It's not BS, it's true. I only have to look inside my own house, and outside, to see it.
    Currently, many, many muslim women in their 30s - 40s are not working. My mother isn't working, all the wives in that same age bracket in the area I live in (100% Muslim btw) aren't working, and I don't think ever intend to.
    I don't think this is an issue regarding islam (if that's what you're implying) Where I live a 100% of female british born pakistanis/bangladeshis etc do work. Most are in their 30s-40s. So what point are you trying to make?

    This is definitely not representitive of all Muslim women, but it is for many women in Pakistani and Bangldeshi communites, who make up a significant percentage of Muslims in the country.

    Yes it's not representative, but it's certainly not the majority. This conservative attitude will get diluted as generations pass. I know many Bangladeshis and pakistanis who don't think like this at all and were brought up the way you're describing it. My parents weren't born here and they fit under the second example in your category. My mum works, my dad works. 2/3 of my sisters work (the 3rd one is 8 years old). All of my cousins work. This isn't an issue about religion it's culture ffs.

    The future of the West will be dominated by Muslims, Orthodox Jews and very right-wing Christians, Atheism is dead, they have no legacy, nobody will even come to their funerals. I saw this chilling speech by a Muslim cleric screaming that Europeans 'desire death' and how his people will go to Europe and give them life, obviously he's a crazy lunatic, but he's also right.
    An empire built on lies and oppression cannot last. Islam will meet the same fate as Christianity is, there's already a mass exodus from Islam taking place and it will only grow in size. The atheist community is on the other hand growing exponentially.

    Globally Christianity and Islam are growing much faster than Atheism, equally the religious Jewish sects are growing much faster than the numbers of liberal and non-religious Jews. Atheists have a serious problem, they close themselves off in their sterile White neighbourhoods and think the rest of the world is like them.

    Honestly, I feel it's more of a cultural problem than one of discrimination- Muslim women just tend to be homemakers instead of working in paid employment. However, there might be some discrimination for certain roles like sales where hiring a women wearing a niqab might not be appropriate and where they are therefore likely to be discriminated against.
    You've got the right kind of idea. Muslim women are oppressed by their religion and culture and are hence forced into roles such as being a housewife. Additionally, the wearing of the Niqab to job interviews really makes it difficult for the interviewer to accept them for the job, considering the fact that it's difficult to trust someone whose face you've never seen before. This concept is mainly why many healthcare systems in the West ban the wearing of Niqabs for doctors and nurses.

    The Niqab is essentially unnecessary and isn't required whatsoever, but even women who wear a hijab instead still are oppressed. Furthermore, there's many who can't even speak English, again, because they're mainly working in the home and this itself acts as a barrier to getting access to jobs and so forth.

    It's a sensitive issue, which probably won't get solved any time soon.

    Your analysis of statistical growth is poor and disturbing. You need to consider what Religon has become now and what it was before. Now, it's much more liberal based, with many denominations allowing for sex before marriage or even endorsing homosexuals, because of love. Prior, many called for their execution and had great spite for them. Furthermore, all the leading bishops in Britain are firm believers in evolution, while in the past, no theist gave a second thought to it. Religion now is a moderate, vague hodgepodge of delusion trying to survive and has abandoned its initial strict principles to garner as many supporters as it can.

    Kim Kardashian proudly wears a cruciifx, yet she's slept with more men than you can count on your fingers (not against it, but many theists are). She's really, by the bible, not much of a Christian. "Not much of a Christian" is what you'd describe the vast majority of Christians today - and that same concept could be applied to other religions too. If anything, society has shifted towards atheism and Liberty, something that many religions clearly frown upon.

    Just to add, the number of Muslim women in their twenties, born, brought up, educated, with strong career plans, is high and is increasing, thankfully.
    i think if you visited any gulf arab states (ie not pakistani or bangladesh) youll see even less educated women there. actually asian muslims do have an education and work ethic that exists culturally, similar to indians sri lankans and east asians - but it seems the non-islamic asian communities far outperform, just as the jewish and european christian do. i think that fact is probably reflected outside uk too ( ie see malaysia, usa , indonesia etc)

    If you had read the article then you would find that it states that Muslim women with the same language skills and qualifications as their white Christian counterparts were included in the study and were much less likely to find employment. The study included graduates.
    Additionally, unless the British Muslim female population authorised you to speak on our behalf, I would like ti correct you in that the vast majority of female Muslims wear the hijab willingly and out of devotion. People like you think we're silenced and don't have a voice, but if you take a step back, you'll see that it's ignorant people such as yourself that wish to unsuccessfully silence us. You don't get to put us in the "oppressed" box. Rather, if you are genuinely concerned, then why don't you try and actively look for a way to tackle Islamophobic and sexist discrimination in the work place.

    Yet you give me a link and expect to accept what's written in it at face value while completely ignoring the fact that it's a PREDICTION rather than actual truth.

    Also, it's projections are gathered with people who "identify" with a certain belief. I've clearly made eloquent in my previous post about what religious beliefs have become and how they're much more lenient and liberal they've become.

    Low p-values indicate high levels of evidence against the null hypothesis

    If the null hypothesis is that I am an average statistician, then the p value against this is <0.001. Don't be too upset.

    true, rest of the world should follow example of a historic system where a woman isnt allowed to become a caliph ( leader) or even a sheikh or emir, rather should be locked in the home and only venture outdoors covered up, in case theres a risk of mixing with males. not exactly conducive to getting a uni education is it

    You just couldn't help yourself could you.

    In a pathetic attempt to make me look wrong and you look right, you changed the hypothesis.

    The statement that YOU MADE, was that you are a good statistician ("better than most on here"). That's very unlikely, hence a low p-value.

    How does it feel to embarrass yourself so much?
