Why is it important?

The paper also goes to examine the level of economic freedom enjoyed by the women of different minorities. It is found that the participation of women of the Muslim minority in household economic decision-making is relatively low. The findings of this study provide justification for the continuation of the provision of special treatment for Muslim women through government policies for improving the level of their socio-economic development.
