Muslim Women’s National Network Australia (MWNNA) – About Us

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:

  1. The education of Muslim women and girls to know and appreciate their Islamic rights and duties
  2. Advocacy with government and non-government institutions on behalf of Muslims, especially women and children
  3. Maintaining good relations with Australians of other faiths and joining with them in interfaith meetings and events
  4. 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.

    Assalamualaikum..

    I have some question pertaining the divorce procedure in Australia…hope you can help me with.. thanks

    here is my Qs:

    I was married to Australian PR (married in Aus) and divorced in malaysia by Malaysian Shariah. Now I remarried in malaysia. I am going to Australia soon, so I want to register this divorce formally in Australia. How do I go about? should I take the Malaysian divorce paper to be endorsed by any iman in Australia or I dont need? should I just lodge this divorce paper directly to the Registry of Births Deaths and Marriages and will be accepted?

    What is the procedure to register the divorce in Australia which took place outside Australia, whereby the divorce cert was being issued to me (Malaysian).
