Religious identity centred human rights strategies among British Muslim women

Brown, Katherine (2005) Religious identity centred human rights strategies among British Muslim women At BASAS Annual Conference & AGM 2005. 30 Mar - 01 Apr 2005. 30 pp.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


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.
