What We Do
Muslim Women's Network UK (MWNUK) is the only national Muslim women's organisation in Britain. We are a small national charity (no. 1155092) and work to improve the social justice and equality for Muslim women and girls. We have a national membership of individuals and organisations with a collective reach of tens of thousands of Muslim women. Our membership also includes women of others faiths / no faith and men who support our work.
We find out about the experiences of Muslim women and girls through research and helpline enquiries. We identify policy and practice gaps and use this information to inform decision makers in government (including at Ministerial level) and other other public bodies. Our knowledge about the issues faced by Muslim women and girls also inform our community campaigns. We also develop resources and training so women and girls are better informed about their rights and how to access support and help.
Our specific projects can be found in the Our Work Section of the website and include:
- Counselling Service
- Resource Production
- Producing Resources
- Training Workshops
- Speaking at Events
- Role Models Project
- International linking to other initiatives

MWNUK is courageous because of the uncompromising and fearless positions it sometimes takes when calling out injustice and inequality

There is no greater time than now for the voices, representation and power of Muslim women to be visible in the feminist movement and all walks of life. MWNUK is a vital force in delivering this much needed balance and representation.
