Muslim Women’s Network UK
We are an Islamic feminist movement that uses 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 for all.
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 membership of more than 700 individuals and organisations with a collective reach of tens of thousands of Muslim women. Our membership also includes women of others faiths and men who support our work.
We have set up and operate a national specialist faith and culturally sensitive helpline that is confidential and non-judgmental, which offers information, support, guidance and referrals for those who are suffering from or at risk of abuse or facing problems on a range of issues.
Although our reach is primarily Muslim women, the helpline will accept calls from and support women of any faith or no faith. For example, the culturally sensitive nature of the helpline could easily support Asian women of other faiths. Men who are concerned about women and girls should also call the helpline. If men and boys need support, for example, at risk of forced marriage, then they should also call the helpline.
