|Title:||Religious identity and 'secular' employment: A case study of young Muslim women graduates in the Sydney workforce||Contributor(s):||Scott, Gai Christine (author); Franzmann, Majella Maria (author)||Publication Date:||2007||DOI:||10.1007/s11562-007-0026-7||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1500||Abstract:||Information obtained from the Australian Bureau of Statistics reveals that Muslim women attend Australian universities in greater proportion than non-Muslim women. They are graduating with qualifications that equip them for employment in the professional workforce. While some elect to work within what might be viewed as a 'protected' environment in Muslim-run or Muslim-focused businesses or organisations, many others enter the general workforce. This paper explores the major issues and concerns for Muslim women especially within a secular workplace, and raises questions about the ways in which they can maintain a strong Muslim identity within the challenges presented by that workplace.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Contemporary Islam, 1(3), p. 275-288||Publisher:||Springer Netherlands||Place of Publication:||Amsterdam, Netherlands||ISSN:||1872-0218
