report by the Women and Equalities Committee has found that Muslim women are three times less likely to be in work due to the perceived triple penalty of being a women, a Muslim and being BAME. Religion is believed to be the main cause due to a rise in Islamophobia in society as a whole.

This discrimination often stems from Muslim women wearing religious clothing in the work place. The report suggests name-blind recruitment as a means of reducing discrimination in the recruitment phase.
