Women's Soccer Egypt

Dr Sahar Al-Hawari
Founder of the women's soccer team in Egypt Dr. Sahar Al-Hawari says playing sport is far better for the girls than doing nothing, and she doesn't see any contradiction with Islamic teaching in this. One of the players Inji Mohammed Ali says she gets lots of teasing from her male friends but thinks they will accept it soon.

Maybe it's a good thing she doesn't know that British women are still fighting for equality on the soccer field 40 years after the first organised games! See this post for more.

There's a great video with interviews on YouTube - unfortunately the Embed function was disabled so you'll have to click over!
