Victim Code Consulation (MoJ)
The Victim's Code is the statutory code that sets out the minimum level of service that victims should receive from the criminal justice system. In July 2019, the Ministry of Justice open a consultation on the Victim's Code to find out views on their proposals to strengthen it. The consultation was open until September 2019. Muslim Wommen's Network UK (MWNUK) responded to the consultation and our responses were mostly based on our research findings from the report 'Muslim Women's Experience of the Criminal Justice System,' by Shaista Gohir.
Some of our recommendations included:
Jess Phillips MP
MWNUK is courageous because of the uncompromising and fearless positions it sometimes takes when calling out injustice and inequality

Baroness Sayeeda Warsi
MWNUK’s authenticity comes from knowledge of lived experiences of Muslim women and girls acquired through their helpline, research and members.

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.
