Article publication date: 1 May 1992


Looks at the results of studies which concern Muslim attitudes to work possibilities for them compared with the majority races in Great Britain. Questions whether “stereotyping” is to blame for lack of opportunities in various “acceptable” careers or the attitudes of prospective employers to women generally and ethnic women in particular. Also examines ethnic family attitudes to education and choice of occupation for their daughters. Concludes that the dissemination of information in the various vernacular languages is to be recommended to aid in the community′s organization for career development in further/higher education.
