Acculturation of young Muslim women in DK

M. Prentow & N. Thaulov

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


In this project we have worked with the Muslim minority in Denmark, focusing on the Muslim women. We have investigated what obstacles the women have met through their upbringing in Denmark due to their religion. Our main interest have been, which conditions that has had an influence when forming their personalities through their upbringing, both what they have taken with them from the Danish culture and what they have taken with them from home, where they were raised Muslim. Furthermore we have worked with media, and how media have portrayed the Muslim minority in Denmark. We have investigated how this has affected the Muslim women’s upbringing in Denmark. Through our empirical work with three different Muslim women, we have found that there is a big difference in when a person feels Danish, and that the religion these women have grown up with, is so deeply impeded in their sub consciousness that they always live their lives through Islam and the Qurans rules.
