Some very, very interesting observations here about men and women and their reasons for conversion.
This is a biggie for women:
"Young women are attracted to Islam because it offers them a society that
espouses morals and modesty, something that is often non-existent in
their former lives. They are sick of a life of permissiveness,
promiscuity, hedonism, drugs and drink, all characteristics of the lives
they led beforehand. Islam offers them a clean, sane, orderly and moral
life, something they were missing. The rules of Islam mandate distance
between the sexes and they like that, after years of sexual behavior
that has no rules or limits. Young women who were victims of sexual
abuse find comfort in Islam, along with honor and appreciation, in
contrast to the humiliation they experienced before they converted."
