'Muslim Girls Fence' is a project collaboration between Maslaha and British Fencing which aims to facilitate spaces at a grassroots level for Muslim girls and women to challenge assumptions and narratives relating to their gender, racial, religious and other identities through both physical and creative methods.
This collection of poems was written by a group of 11-14 year old girls in Wapping High School in Tower Hamlets, reflecting on the topic of societal expectations.
