Gunter Dietz and Nadia El-Shohoumi delve into the worlds of Muslim women in southern Spain, examining their religious beliefs and practices, family and community life, professional training and labor market integration, and the dimensions and sources of the discrimination they face daily. The authors find that the Muslim women typically are viewed as ""stepdaughters"" by the society in which they reside - and often by their communities of origin, as well. They also critically assess the potential within the host society for successfully counteracting both the gender-based and the ethno-religious discrimination to which the women are subject.
