The study presents the results of research carried out as part of my master’s thesis, which I defended in May 2021. The text is divided into three thematic areas: veiling, the position of women in marriage, and polygamy. I map the attitude of individual media towards Muslim women at the beginning of the migration crisis and in the present. I monitor to which extent the media spreads images about stereotypes, misinformation, or valid information among respondents and how the respondents are affected by them. The migration crisis sparked a wave of information that flooded people every day. Muslim women were increasingly portrayed in the media, emphasizing their way of dressing, their attitude towards men, and their position in society. In Slovakia during the election period, some political parties even built their election campaign on this picture. The research results represent a summary of discursive and content analysis of selected media contributions from 2015 to 2020 and field research conducted in the academic year 2020/2021.
