Inside Scandinavia's first women-only mosque

The Danish capital Copenhagen is home to Scandinavia's first mosque run entirely by and for women. The Mariam mosque is headed by the feminist Sherin Khankan. Only women can be imams and take part in the Friday prayers. It's Khankan's way of fighting both for a progressive Islam and against growing Islamophobia in Denmark.

A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett, Jessica Sestili and Aline Schmidt.
