Sporting Sisters: Stories of Muslim Women in Sport


This documentary is the end result of a youth-led heritage project carried out over one year by a group of young Muslim women from across London. It documents Muslim women's participation in sport from 1948 and preserves the current views of Muslim girls and young women towards sport. Muslim women's participation in sport in the UK is not widely known about; 'Sporting Sisters: Stories of Muslim Women in Sport' is an opportunity for the topic's profile to be raised and to highlight the hidden voices of Muslim women in our society.
