Forgotten Women: the impact of Islamophobia on Muslim women

This project aims to document the disproportionate effect of Islamophobia on women and develop alliances between the anti-racism and feminist movements in order to better address the intersectional discrimination affecting Muslim women.

The project is taking place in 8 countries, chosen to get a representative picture of the situation of Muslim women in the European Union: Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Sweden and United Kingdom.

The project aims to:

  • Document the disproportionate effect of Islamophobia on Muslim women
  • Provide analysis to improve the implementation of equality law in cases of discrimination against Muslim women
  • Counter stereotypes about Muslim women and promote positive messages
  • Foster cross-group partnership and develop alliances between the anti-racist and feminist movements in order to better address the intersectional discrimination affecting Muslim women (gender, religion, race and class)
  • Disseminate the findings of the research in advocacy settings (European and national), communication activities and lawyers’ workshops
