MWSN Launches Muslim Women in Sport Power List

 The world’s most visionary and influential Muslim women in sport are today unveiled in this year’s ‘Muslim Women in Sport Power List’, curated by the global Muslim Women in Sport Network (MWSN).  Launched  on, the Power List identifies 30 of the freshest and most inspiring Muslim women positively impacting the sports industry at various levels as athletes, program managers, journalists, coaches, administrators, researchers, executives, entrepreneurs and beyond.

 This Power List showcases and provides a platform for the global community of Muslim Women in sport. With every edition of this Power List we avidly search for the most influential and inspiring talent.  Some of the Power-Listers are world-renowned Olympians while others are local heroes; all are equally powerful.  Members of the Power List for 2019 were finalised by a panel of sports people from across the world – author of “Basirah the Basketballer says Insha Allah” Hafsah Dabiri, and University of Connecticut basketball player Batouly Camara.

About the MWSN

 The Mission of MWSN is to amplify the voices of Muslim women in sport and inspire globally.

Muslim women around the world have been and are actively engaging in sport at various levels as athletes, program managers, journalists, coaches, administrators, researchers, executives, and entrepreneurs. Often the discourse when engaging with Muslim women in sport is focused around dress-code and overcoming cultural and religious barriers. Decisions made around policy, program design and engagement related to Muslim women in sport is void of any consultation or meaningful engagement and leadership from Muslim women. It is time Muslim women instruct decision and policymakers on what it means to be a Muslim woman in sport and shed light into the diversity of Muslim women.

In March 2017, Muslim women around the world committed to creating a ‘Global Home for Muslim Women in Sport.’ The group is led by Muslim women from around the world who are actively involved in sport from various disciplines and are advancing the status and recognition of the role that Muslim women play in sport.
