Youth Essays on Gendered Islamophobia
Cristina Rodríguez Reche reflects on how Muslim women experience racism in its many forms on a daily basis, and how despite it not being their responsibility to educate society or fight to break those stereotypes, when they do, the glass ceiling becomes even higher for them.
Rodríguez Reche is currently a Margarita Salas postdoctoral researcher in GRITIM- UPF. Her main research interests deal with religious pluralism, migration, racism, Islamophobia, identity, mixedness and gender. Prior to this role, she was a predoctoral researcher (FPI 206) in the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology (Autonomous University of Barcelona), finishing her PhD in 2020. Upon completing her PhD, she was a postdoctoral fellow in the same department for a year, and today she still maintains her affiliation with the INMIX research group where she did her predoctoral research.
