Deeyah, a Norwegian artist who has been referred to as a "Muslim Madonna," is using her talents to support young Muslim women.

The singer, composer and producer is a versatile artist and a passionate human rights activist who has recently launched the SISTERHOOD project to support and encourage young Muslim women.

Implications - Projects like this strive to make the world a better place, and ultimately unlock an entirely new pool of inspiration that might previously have remained closed. The creative potential of a marginalized population such as this could hold entirely new perspectives that as of yet haven't been explored. Forward-thinking companies will definitely want to do everything they can to foster this growth as it could pay major dividends down the road.
