Muslim women are to be invited on Government-funded assertiveness training courses in a bid to counter Islamist radicalism.

Communities and Local Government Secretary Hazel Blears is to publish a document arguing that women have the potential to become a voice for moderation in Muslim communities and steer young people away from the clutches of extremist recruiters.

She will tell local authorities to use part of a £70 million Government fund, set up to counter extremism, to pay for courses in confidence building, communication and mediation skills for Muslim women.

Women are expected to be offered work placements with business leaders and successful athletes, while funding will be made available to set up Muslim women’s groups to provide a safe space for discussion.
