Junge Musliminnen Österreich

15-21 October, Vienna

Junge Musliminnen Österreich strive to achieve equality for Muslim women in and around the world of sport. The organisation offers women and girls who have previously been discriminated against or forced to sacrifice physical activity over religious beliefs a safe space to participate in a variety of sports activities without fear of persecution from their communities or outsiders.

They have launched a Stay Fit programme, organising a number of sports sessions for Muslim women, including football, boxing, swimming and dancing, and during the #FootballPeople weeks, Young Muslim Women of Austria will run a football tournament followed by a discussion about sport and health.
