    Idk I saw a documentary a long time ago(don't remember the name) a French Muslim did an experiment where she put her information as Muslim and she was refused the job(has the qualifications). She then put her information as Christian (Same job applied). Got the job. Idk tbh

    Not everyone is going to be as successful as each other. Deal with it. Muslim women are fine how they are and are perfect how they are. Stop trying to create divisions.
    Don't you think it is a problem that Muslim women have higher unemployment rates than other women? This might be a result of cultural issues which discourage women from working and having the same ability to earn a living for the family. It could also show that Muslim women are under pressure to not work. Or it could show that employers are disco ranting against Muslim women. Either way, there's clearly a problem.

    Well, every muslim woman in my extended family and friends are more educated than men.

    When did you become an advocate for every muslim woman out there? (I knew I would get an ignorant response and I got it sooner than later) :rofl:
    Your logic is horribly flawed.


    I am not a advocate for all Muslim women
    You are not a advocate for all Muslim women
    I never claimed to be but said that just because you are aspiring for a good job
    does not mean all Muslim women are.

    A Muslim woman who has no job but is a good mother and wife, is more successful than a single 40 year old White woman with more money but less family life.
    Depends how you define success

    Well duh!

    In one of my all muslim, female, friendship groups, I'm the one who's made to feel inadequate for having career plans and goals.

    Like ok, you can sponge off your husband and never have much financial independence

    It is not flawed. The way you made your point was flawed. I know the study is bogus because I am not the only person to be in a good field. In my University, there are more muslim girls than guys who are aspiring to be doctors, lawyers and engineers. I go by what I observe not by some study over the internet.

    There's no evidence at all to suggest that Allah exists so being successful in the eyes of Allah doesn't mean a thing.

    Given that in the United Kingdom:

    - 52% of Muslims believe homosexuality should be illegal.
    - 39% of Muslims believe a woman should always obey their husband.
    - And 23% of Muslims believe in the introduction of Sharia Law.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Islamic culture had a role to play in the lack of women pursuing high profile and well-paid jobs. After all, in Islam a woman's primary role is to be a housekeeper.

    All this study does is consolidate what is already known:

    Muslim women are repeatedly held back by the men in their lives.

    Sure, some Muslim women are successful. You can be an award winning surgeon and still call yourself a Muslim. But what the data shows is that if you are a Muslim (or rather, born into a Muslim family) then you are less likely to achieve independence from your family and/or husband.

    More needs to be done to tackle the blatant misogyny in our society today, under the name of any god.

    Still flawed.
    It is like saying lets look out my window. I can see 3 robins and a Pigeon that must mean there are more robins in the uk than pigeon. What you experience and see is not what is always a representation of what most people see.

    Ugh, I hate this stereotype perpetuated by most Muslims.

    Newsflash, you can be white and Muslim.

    He is not wrong you know she is a part of the x% that are aspiring to be and are successful . he never said that she is the only one. as obviously more than 1 muslim is successful but compared to muslim men or non muslim women she might be part of the fewer successes comparatively.
