    Abstract The main aim of this report is to provide policy suggestions to disrupt stereotypes concerning Muslim women and acknowledge their heterogeneities. Furthermore, the report highlights considerations that could be useful in: 1) creating the conditions to soothe the Islamophobia-based violence against Muslim immigrant women in the ‘West’; and, 2) develop strategies and measures aiming to promote mutual understanding and acceptance of Muslim groups living in culturally diverse societies in the ‘West’. The objective of this study is to explore how Muslim immigrant women feel about being and moving in public areas of Hamilton and hear from Muslim immigrant women on how they feel in and/or out of in such places.
