Muslim men and women see life in America differently

In many ways, Muslim men and women see life in America differently

While many Muslims express wariness and anxiety about aspects of their lives in the United States, Muslim women tend to be more pessimistic about their place in U.S. society than Muslim men. According to a new Pew Research Center survey, more Muslim women than men say it has become more difficult to be Muslim in the U.S. in recent years (57% vs. 43%). And Muslim women are more divided on their acceptance by society at large than are men.
