Race, faith and gender : converging discriminations against Muslim women in Victoria : the ongoing impact of September 11, 2001 /

by Islamic Women's Welfare Council of Victoria.

Publisher: Northcote, Vic. Islamic Women's Welfare Council of Victoria 2008Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The experiences of Muslim women in Victoria after September 11 documented in this research demonstrate that instances of racism are not simply isolated, one-off incidents. Racism against Muslim women has a pervasive and persistent cyclical pattern, characterised by quiet periods of everyday racisms and incivility, which are interrupted by sharp rises in racism after international incidents of Muslim-related terrorism. This research demonstrated that non-Muslim Victorians' perceptions of Muslims in general, and Muslim women in particular, are complex but nonetheless inextricably tied to Muslim women?s experiences of racism. What non-Muslim Victorians think of Muslim women affects these women?s lives and their potential for integration. It is important to note that, at least for Muslim women who participated in this study, it was the fear of racism and not their mistreatment by their society or religion that restricted their freedom and independence. Our research confirmed that non-Muslim Victorians and Muslim women feel a growing divide in relations between Muslims and non-Muslims. Muslim women feel it through a growing sense of marginalisation and non-Muslim Victorians feel it in the unfair treatment they perceive Muslims to receive. For Victorians on both sides of the divide, there is a strong desire for contact and exchange of ideas, information and common experiences.Availability: (1)

Why are you "active" : voices of young muslim women post-9/11 : a thesis submitted in conformity with the requirements for the degree of Masters of Arts Graduate Department of Sociology and Equity Studies in Education /

by Aslam, Jabeen | University of Toronto.

Publisher: Toronto, Canada Thesis 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 108-117Summary: Contributing to the literature on the Muslim experience post-9/11, the purpose of this study was to engage with a group that is often talked about, but not with: Muslim youth. Using an integrative anti-racist and anti-colonial approach with an emphasis on a spiritual way of knowing, this study gives voice to young Muslim activists in Toronto who have made the choice to 'do something'. The study aims to understand what motivates these young activists, particularly in the context of post-9/11 Islamophobia, with the goal being to challenge stereotypical perceptions of Muslims, while contributing to the body of knowledge that aims to disrupt dominant notions of what 'Canadian' identity is. The following analysis helps answer this question, which includes the role of spirituality, the attachment to Canadian identity and the desire to educate. Key challenges and what these youth prescribe for Canada's future are also discussedAvailability: (1)
