|Pressure on Muslim women to stay out of music
During 2007–2008, the Norwegian Muslim singer and human rights activist Deeyah set up a project for Muslim women in music in a bid to change attitudes towards women artists.
As a result of the hundreds of songs which were submitted to her from women rappers and singers through her profile-page on the internet music community MySpace.com she organised an online mixtape of previously unreleased songs written by young up-and-coming women Muslim rappers, singers and poetesses from the UK, Europe and US, and named the project ‘Sisterhood’.
