Ali, Lutfiye (2015) Australian Muslim women : diverse experiences, diverse identities. PhD thesis, Victoria University.


Despite the diversity among Muslim women, in Australia and elsewhere, they have been constructed as homogenous and bound to a religious identity and the veil. The aim of this thesis was to explore the diverse ways in which Muslim women negotiate their identity in the context of Australian multicultural social relations, informed by current and historical colonial discourses.
