Description

About the film
Sporting Sisters: the Stories of Muslim Women in Sport is a short documentary film, inspired by the 2012 Olympic Games, which brings together archival research and interviews with different generations of Muslim women, to preserve their voices for future generations as part of a Young Roots, Heritage Lottery Funded project.

The documentary takes a look at how fashion, specialist women's groups and cultural values have adapted to enable Muslim women to get involved in a range of sports, from cycling to boxing. It was filmed, produced and edited by a group of young Muslim women over the past year with support from youth research charity IARS, London Metropolitan University and the Women's Library.
