MWNUK remains the only national networking organisation of its kind in the UK if not Europe. It does not replace or replicate the role of individual Muslim women's organisations but instead builds connections between such organisations, encouraging  them to retain their respective programmatic goals while creating synergies around issues of concern to women from Muslim communities and pooling activist resources.

This article presents MWNUK as a case study of how British Muslim women have constructed platforms and spaces in order to have their voices heard. The article is organised in three parts. The first presents a history of the network. The second highlights the main issues addressed by the network. The third focuses on the relationships formed by MWNUK with state and civic organisations and the challenges which are presented therein.
