Example

I am interested in how girls and women who are Muslim, get to participate in sport. I clicked on the link for Global sport matters, typed in my search and after browsing a bit, came across this podcast. "Podcast: The complicated space of Muslim women athletes" https://globalsportmatters.com/podcast/2019/04/12/podcast-the-complicated-space-of-women-muslim-athletes/

I thought I could explore the topic of cultural influence on Muslim women in Canada in participating in sport.
