Our members are mainly Muslim women living in the UK while our non-Muslim members work with or on behalf of Muslim women and girls or are simple interested in supporting their rights. Our membership is diverse in in terms of ethnicity, age, religious background (including religious sect), lifestyles, sexual orientation, geographic location and different employment sectors. Members also include men who wish to support and champion women's rights. As our members are onwardly connected to other Muslim women, we collectively (through our membership) have a reach of tens of thousands of women.
