How to get more Muslim women involved in sport

From Nine To Noon, 9:35 am on 24 July 2020

Researchers at Waikato University have looked at the experiences of Muslim women and their participation in sport and recreation - the first time the issue's been explored in any depth in Aotearoa. Kathryn talks with Professor Holly Thorpe and Dr Nida Ahmad from the University of Waikato, and 17-year-old Huda Anas, who plays in North Wellington's Premier Division and W-League.
