Washington – Muslim women living in the United States are finding that religious and cultural differences are tolerated and respected widely, says Tayyibah Taylor, the editor of Azizah magazine, a glossy quarterly written by and for Muslim women in North America.
“I think America is the most religiously diverse country in the world,” said Taylor, who was born in Trinidad of Barbadian parents. “You learn how to get along with people who are very different from you. Your differences don’t really become an issue.”
Speaking during a State Department-sponsored webchat April 23, Taylor said Muslim women are “well-integrated into the workplace” and are “in every professional field, engineering, medicine, business.” Many have been profiled in the magazine, she noted.
