Discrimination and Hate Crime
Muslim women could be discriminated against on many grounds e.g. due to their gender, race, religion, age, disability and sexuality. Due to the rise in Islamophobia and the nature of enquiries received on discrimination, this fact sheet has been developed to focus on religious discrimination only. However, please use the information provided as a guideline and seek professional advice.
