This chapter looks at the issue of “young” Muslims from the perspective of pious Muslim women in two European settings: France and Germany. It concentrates, on the one hand, on the ways in which these young women construct a notion of youthfulness in response to a dominant secular “emancipation” narrative of sexual freedom and also in negotiation with gendered norms in their families. On the other hand, it embeds the emerging alternative conceptions of youthfulness within the wider framework of national citizenship traditions and shows how the women in both countries have adopted and/or transformed notions of membership through recourse to national or supranational traditions.

Keywords:   European Muslims, France, Germany, secularism, gendered norms, citizenship, youthfulness, piety
