dc.description.abstractThough there have been numerous investigations of identity formation among members of minority groups, little research addresses religious identity or gender specific integration strategies. This study sought to examine cultural identity construction among American Muslim women, who as members of a religious minority often experience discrimination from the cultural majority to which many belong. Semi-structured interviews with 8 Muslim females investigated the relationship each maintains with Islamic and non-Islamic cultures, the impact of social conditioning on faith practices, and negotiation of identity conflicts. Each individual was found to value her Muslim identity and traditions over those of non-Muslim culture, which did not appear to influence significantly how each woman practiced her faith.en_US
