Expired: Vergeten vrouwen: De impact van islamphobia van Moslim vrouwen

Forgotten women: the impact of Islamophobia on Muslim women ENAR’s project “Forgotten Women: the impact of Islamophobia on Muslim women” aims to
document the disproportionate impact of Islamophobia on women and to strengthen alliances between the anti-racism and feminist movements in order to better address the intersectional discrimination affecting Muslim women or those perceived as such. It has taken place between 2015 and 2016 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 the
United Kingdom.
The aim of the report on the Netherlands is to gain insight into the unique experiences of Muslim women with Islamophobia in the Netherlands, particularly in the context of employment and racist speech and violence. Therefore the main questions that guide this report are:
1) What is the labour market position of Muslim women?
2) How does labour market discrimination affect Muslim women?
3) To what extent are Muslim women protected against labour market discrimination under
(inter)national legal provisions and through existing policies?
4) What are the recent developments in racist speech and violence against Muslims and how do
these affect Muslim women?
5) To what extent are Muslim women protected against racist speech and violence under
(inter)national legal provisions and through existing policies?
An estimated 80% of Muslims in the Netherlands have a Turkish, Moroccan, Afghani, Iraqi, Iranian or
Somali background.
