In 2013, MWNUK launched the groundbreaking report, Unheard Voices: Sexual Exploitation of Asian Girls and Young Women. Six awareness raising events were held in different cities to disseminate the findings so that front line agencies and communities can better protect and also prevent victims of child sexual exploitation.

In memory of the late Cassandra Balchin, Muslim Women’s Network UK are pleased to announce that we will be creating an anthology due for publication in 2014. Our aim is to show a complete picture of the real lives of Muslim women and the wider community. This includes the good, the bad and the ugly and thus whilst we seek for example, submissions on the issue of forced marriage, we similarly welcome submissions on the topic of arranged marriages so as to show a distinction between the two. We would like female genital mutilation discussed along with all the other forms of violence against women. We want the economic inequality of women addressed together with barriers such as racism. There is no limit to the amount of topics, or to the level of creativity that can be displayed by an individual.

Muslim women are RISING to end VIOLENCE as a part of the global ONE BILLION RISING movement, which will be marked on the 14th February 2013. Muslim Women’s Network UK has therefore launched a campaign to encourage more mosques to get involved in tackling violence. We have sent a postcard to 100 mosques across the UK to request they pledge an action to combat violence.
