Nobody’s Metaphor follows the experiences of four young women as they
experiment with using an unusual combination of fencing and poetry to challenge stereotypes and define themselves without the weight of anyone else’s expectations. Although initially sceptical and somewhat demotivated, throughout the Muslim Girl’s Fence workshops they support each other to discover their own individual voices, finding the space to express themselves and the tools to confront racism, sexism and islamophobia.
