We therefore have 5 core principles that underpin our work and are at the heart of everything we do.
We are a Muslim women's movement that is inspired by the Quran's spirit of equality and justice to challenge human interpretations (based on culture and tradition) that discriminate against women and girls, to achieve equal rights and opportunities.
We uncover and tackle uncomfortable truths fearlessly, honestly and independently by taking action, which is always in the interests of Muslim women and girls.
We are informed by the voices and lived experiences of Muslim women and girls.
We bring about real change through innovative thinking and doing, which positively affects the treatment of Muslim women and girls.
We demonstrate our inclusivity and non-judgmental stance throughout our policies, procedures and our work.
