n Journal for Islamic Studies - The agency of Muslim mothers and those whom they mothered

Volume 37 Number 1

Several research projects have explored the identity of Muslim women in Britain. Some of that research has studied how Muslim women practise Islam in ‘secular spaces’ and assert their religious identity in Britain. However, there is hardly any research that focusses on exploring the intergenerational identities of British Muslim women. As Gilliat-Ray and others suggest, the heterogeneity of the British Muslim community warrants further study. By focussing on women’s agency, family, and education, we emphasise the diversity of British Muslim ethnicities, and the heterogeneity of our Muslim participants.
