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)

The impact of racism upon the health and wellbeing of young Australians /

by Mansouri, Fethi et.al.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Foundation for Young Australians with Education Foundation 2009; Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation 2009Description: 135 p.: ill. col.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This report explores the attitudes of Australian youth in relation to key issues in contemporary race relations, such as cultural diversity, tolerance and privilege. Understanding the direct experiences of young people facing racism who are from Indigenous, migrant or refugee backgrounds is critically important as we re-imagine the roles and values placed upon all young people, in all communities across Australia. One of the clearest messages to come from this report is a reminder of the critical role that our schools play and the core responsibility that is bestowed upon school communities to instil values and behaviours that contribute more directly to building a diverse and dynamic nation. ; The key objectives of the project were: ; -to examine the experiences of racism for young people in Australia of mainstream (English-speaking background), Indigenous, migrant and refugee backgrounds; ; -to investigate how young people in Australia report and respond to racism; and ; -to explore the attitudes of mainstream youth in relation to key issues in contemporary race relations, such as cultural diversity, tolerance and privilege.Availability: (1)
