Muslim Girls Fence

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Watch a fencing demonstration with rising stars in action before picking up a foil to take part yourself.

Muslim Girls Fence is a collaboration between Maslaha and British Fencing, aiming to challenge misperceptions of young Muslim women by tapping into the confidence and resilience building associated with fencing.

Muslim women face double the discrimination, based off of both their faith and gender. This project shares new visions of what it really means to be a Muslim girl in the UK today and provides a platform for participants to tell their own stories.
