Muslim Women: Tell your Story

Click here and scroll down to the second half of the page to learn more about this oral history project taking place in the UK:

Do you have a story to tell?

Is there information about you and your family’s experiences, in the past, which you would like to pass on to future generations?

Rainbow Lives feels it is very important to have your stories recorded and saved so people can learn today, and future generations can learn about their heritage in years to come.

We would like people to record their stories which can be in their own language and we will archive these important stories for future generations.

These stories will also be transcribed into English so others can learn about your history, customs, songs, poems etc.

Recordings will be made at a time and place suitable to you.

We are looking for Muslim women of any age interested in telling their stories and also for women who are interested in carrying out the interviews.

No experience is necessary as we will train you in the use of recording equipment and interviewing techniques.
