Muslim women in Britain feel their views are being ignored because community leaders and male-dominated national Muslim organisations are failing to represent them, according to a government report published today.
They also accuse the government of consulting the community only through groups such as the Muslim Council of Britain, in which women’s voices are “either absent or extremely marginalised”. [The Guardian.]
I wonder who else made the same point recently. Look forward to Inayat Bunglawala, Madeleine Bunting and Salma Yaqoob’s reactions. How dare these women challenge “community leaders”, right?
