Metro: The document awards star ratings to mosques judged by a series of requirements including providing separate prayer space to women.
A directory of 100 ‘women-friendly’ mosques in England has been launched

Other criteria include services and activities for women, an imam accessible to women – or a woman scholar – women holding office on mosque committees and the inclusion of women in decision making at operational and strategic levels in the mosque.
The directory, by the inter-faith and conflict resolution organisation Faith Matters contains 50 mosques which have met all five criteria and 50 where four of the standards have been met.

Researchers for the directory assessed 486 mosques in order to draw up the directory.
