Muslim women are the "least successful group in society" report finds Watch

    Offline

    The article mainly points at islamaphobia being a reason for why a lot of Muslim women are unemployed.

    Islamophobia is not as common as you think as in most cases employers think the ideal Muslim woman wears a headscarf (which is a minority from where I'm from).

    This article is a bit weird as i don't think it really accounts for the Muslim women that don't wear hijabs, since it's nearly impossible to identify a Muslim woman if she is not wearing a hijab.

    That being said not many women in my family wear headscarves, but they all have well paid jobs. This accounts for all family friends and friends alike. My neighbour on the other hand wears a hijab(by choice) and is a GP herself.

    I really think inverted South Asian culture plays a part in this nonsense on the idea of women having to stay at home and look after kids.

    Pease be careful when you make statements about Muslim women and employment.

    This is based on a census. This evidence is what Muslim women themselves have said.
    The stubborness people have accepting evidence that challenges their sense of righteousness is pathetic.

    For someone so educated, you are incredibly daft.

    Look up Iran. More women at uni. More men in good jobs and positions of power.

    Go there. See what your education gives you down the line.

    Good luck.
    LOL! Someone seems a bit triggered.

    Why would I go there? Just because I am muslim? And, a woman? You are trying to make a point that I should go live in a muslim country? Because, I am muslim?

    Well, are we reffering to countries or muslim women? I think this article is about muslim women in UK. Also, if you actually read the article. She was discriminated against, in Manchester because of her headscarf. Does it show anywhere that she was held back by a muslim man or her family? No.

    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.
    Says who?

    Success is personal.

    I think that men who are feminine, don't provide for their families or who are cowardly are pathetic wastes, I don't only apply cruel standards to women. I hate masculine women and feminine men.
    Do you compete in any form of fighting? If not I consider you feminine.

    I agree actually, which is why those who published this data were wrong to use the word success since it shoehorns Muslim women into a Western standard they did not consent to.

    If a Women is genuinely happy being a career women she certainly has that right

    Not a Muslim, my background if anything would probably surprise you. I've always naturally felt that Western liberalism for all the comforts it brings us leaves people soulless and dead inside.

    EDIT: On the other side of this, the danger with traditional cultures is that it leaves women open to abuses of power by cruel men, so it's not as if I am saying Trad Con societies are perfect of that the West is totally flawed.

    I'm not even a virgin or a social aspie who is angry at the world, this is literally how I think.
    Okay, what exactly is your background, if you don't mind me asking?

    I would still much prefer western liberalism to any other of harmful present alternatives tbh

    Considering living standards and human rights in the west at the present time outshine good portions of the world by miles I wouldn't have it any other way

    Used to, not that I agree with your metric since people can lose boxing licenses for street fighting.

    It is very wrong to judge a Muslim woman by an arbitrary Western standard, if the discussion only said they have lower rates of earnings it would be acceptable, but to write them off as unsuccessful is nonsense.
    If they are in western countries then they will be be judged by western standards. That's the way things work.

    You're a liar you never used to. Why lie?
    How you gonna lose an amateur licence for street fighting, this would only happen to pro's which you obviously aren't.

    If you want to talk about suffering of muslim women then we can also talk about suffering of women in general? I do see that there are problems faced but there are muslim women who are successful than their counterparts in every field. It might not have been in the past but things are changing. My own family has more female doctors and one male doctor.
    Projection. My family is doing this ergo most families probably do this. :rolleyes:

    Well, every muslim woman in my extended family and friends are more educated than men.
    You are not going to make much of a lawyer if you use anecdotal evidence like that in any court of law...

    What is success? And by what standard are they measuring this success?
    Muslim women are successful in their own right and they don't need a bbc report to prove that.
    Successful by a different metric. One that we regard as inferior here.
