sister-hood is an award-winning digital magazine and a series of live events spotlighting the voices of women of Muslim heritage.

Conference

In 2015, Fuuse organised a global conference in Oslo to celebrate women’s activism and creativity. This highlighted the work and opinions of some of the most important activists and artists in the world today – women of Muslim origin, such as Nawal el-Saadawi, Shirin Ebadi, Mona Eltahawy and Hina Jilani. The intense response to this event ignited the creation of sister-hood.
