Women in Brunei are women living in or are from Brunei Darussalam. In their version of Islamic society, Bruneian women are regarded as persons of "very high status".[2]

Clothing norms[edit]

The Mouslim women of Brunei wear traditional head cover known as the tudong,[2] also spelled as tudung.

Gender roles[edit]

In recent years, Bruneian women have started to assume "positions of responsibility" in the Government of Brunei. They are able to take jobs in the armed forces of Brunei; however they are not allowed to serve while in combat situations.[2]
