The MWNNA is a peak body representing a network of Muslim women’s organisations and individuals throughout Australia.
We are a multicultural Muslim women’s organization. We welcome Muslim women of all ages, occupations and ethnicities to join with us in sisterhood
Our individual members include lawyers, corporate managers, journalists, teachers, university students and home managers. Our membership is also drawn from a broad mix of ethnic backgrounds from the Middle East, South East Asia, the Pacific Islands, Africa, Europe and America, as well as members who were born in this country.
We are located in Auburn New South Wales. We meet on the first Saturday of every month for discussion, talk or video and a social get together.
Our interests are:
- The education of Muslim women and girls to know and appreciate their Islamic rights and duties
- Advocacy with government and non-government institutions on behalf of Muslims, especially women and children
- Maintaining good relations with Australians of other faiths and joining with them in interfaith meetings and events
- Assisting refugees and others in need of help in our society
The MWNNA works closely with leading progressive Muslim figures in Australia and overseas. Many of our initiatives include men and women. In Australia, our members are active in interfaith activities with members of Jewish, Christian (Catholic & Protestant), Hindu, Bahai and Bhuddist faiths.
