Muslim women in UK

Police force reveals uniforms for Muslim women in UK first

A new police uniform has been developed specifically for Muslim women in an attempt to recruit more black and minority ethnic officers. West Yorkshire Police is the first force in the country to launch the new loose fitting uniform ‘designed not to show the female form’, bosses said. It is hoped the uniforms will improve race equality among applicants after police chiefs were told to do more to appeal to BAME recruits.
 
 

Sharia marriages can be covered by English law

Muslim women who are left powerless to claim money or property from their husbands after the breakdown of an Islamic marriage have been “given hope” by a landmark ruling at the High Court.
 
The Honourable Mr Justice Williams found a woman was entitled to maintenance from her husband after they split, even though they had only undergone a “nikah” ceremony and had not formally registered their marriage.
