Why Swedish women convert to Islam?"Many Western converts – irrespective of religion – long for wholeness. Those I have interviewed, strive for homogeneity as they see heterogeneity, complexity, and ambiguities as threatening and problematic. This longing for wholeness is expressed on many different levels.They wish to have stable heterosexual gender roles and are conﬁdent with the traditional, patriarchal family model. They argue that the absolute truth can be found in Islam, and they wish to live in a theocratic society ruled by Islam
