Quote of the Day – Muslim Women & Sports


“Muslim women feel empowered, physically stronger and more successful when they participate in sports and they are trying to find ways not to cross the borders of their cultural/religious obligations. The governing bodies should be more supportive for Muslim women to find ways to be able to play sports in accordance with their religious sensitivities, rather than forcing them to make a choice between the two.”

— Sertaç Sehlikoglu, a PhD candidate at the University of Cambridge and the author of the blog Muslim Women in Sports.
