Description/Abstract


This paper considers the complexities of the British Muslim-Islamic identity and the
positions it offers British Muslim women to acquire rights from the State, the
community and the family. By recognising the interplay of religion, gender and
ethnicity in the every-day lives of British Muslim women, it is possible to reveal how
religious identity positions have re-constructed rights and provided Muslim women in
the UK with a platform from which to attain rights. This paper is based on field work
conducted between 2003 and 2004, and will mainly report on the findings from this
research.
