sister-hood - LIVE

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Hear from the writers of sister-hood, the award-winning digital magazine spotlighting the fearless, progressive and creative voices of women of Muslim heritage. This panel will feature sister-hood’s founder, film-maker and human rights activist Deeyah Khan, anti-FGM activist Leyla Hussein and other contributors to sister-hood.

Looking at 'honour' and 'shame' and how these concepts are used to control women the panel discuss how we challenge the social and cultural pressures in Muslim communities that restrict women’s ability to live their lives on their own terms.
