Abstract

The aim of this paper is to analyse the concept of purity and virginity among the Muslim millennials in the West. Young Muslims in a European context address the issue of sexuality with their peers including those of a different faith, through common stories and anecdotes. On the other hand, their female counterparts grow up with the idea that they need to combine “respect with the lipstick”: that is to combine the Islamic values with their life as Western millennials. In order to understand their idea of purity, a sociological analysis on a sample of Muslim millennials has been carried out. This analysis made it possible to understand how Italian female Muslims live sexualities and gender inequalities.
