This paper discusses multiculturalism in view of collectivistic cultural structures in immigrant communities. Women in religious minority communities are ruled according to collectivistic structures when it comes to marriage, divorce, and children custody. Some Muslim leaders demand a plurality of laws, where minority communities can live according to their collectivistic nomos. In contrast, some Muslim women organisations tend to reject this claim as it is regarded as opposed to equal individual rights for every citizen.
