    1. WE thought: Muslim men do not want women in the workplace

    2. WE thought: Muslim women wear the hijab out of force from their religion/country

    3. WE thought: Muslim women wearing long clothing can be seen as a security risk and a "flag of fundamentalism"

    4. WE thought: Muslim women are forced into arranged marriages by their parents

    5. WE thought: Muslim women feel oppressed and don't get as many opportunities as women in other cultures

    6. WE thought: Muslim women are (or should be) uneducated

    7. WE thought: Muslim women are submissive to their male counterparts

    8. WE thought: Muslim women can't have jobs outside of their homes

    9. WE thought: All Muslim women are alike and are just a stereotype
