Muslim Women Britain’s Most Disadvantaged Because of Islamophobia – MPs | BOCA NO TROMBONE! | Scoop.it
Muslim women are discriminated against in the job market, making them the most economically disadvantaged group in British society, MPs have found.
A report by the Women and Equalities Committee discovered Muslim women are three times more likely to be unemployed and looking for work than women generally, and are more than twice as likely to be economically inactive.

Muslim women were found to face discrimination because of their religion, despite this being illegal under the Equality Act.

The committee suggested Muslim women face a “triple penalty” which hampers their employment prospects – being a woman, being from an ethnic minority and being Muslim.
