American Muslims come from many distinct racial and ethnic groups. However, due to their shared religious identity, they have been lumped into a single racialized category, which has been stigmatized in political discourse and the press, and thus denied the privileges associated with social citizenship in the United States. This presentation, based on qualitative research with Arab and South Asian Muslim Americans in Chicago and Texas, examines the unique ways gender influences anti-Muslim discrimination as well as resistance to these experiences, and reveals a growing need to examine the intersectionalities of Muslim experiences along lines of gender, race, citizenship and religion.
