Issued Date: 15 Jul 2009


This article explains the work patterns and determinants of the South Asian female Muslim migrants in the multiethnic and multicultural setting of Australia. The paper also compares the work differentials of this group of female migrants with non Muslim female migrants from the same region of birth, Muslim women from other regions of birth, other groups of female migrants, and native-born women. Accordingly, the multivariate results of this comparative analysis provide the opportunity to examine appropriately the influence of religion on the employment status of Muslim women from the South Asian region in both intra region and worldwide comparisons.
