This report on second generation British Muslim women showed that although most want to work only 49% of them have a job – and the rest face severe barriers.

The report uses previously unpublished data of the employment levels of second generation British Muslim women from the 2001 Census and 2005 Annual Population Survey (APS), and highlights employment disadvantage in the UK’s nine Regional Development Agency (RDA) areas from a survey of second generation British Muslim women conducted for the research.
