Equality without Exception

The Australian Muslim Women’s Centre for Human Rights is an organisation of Muslim women working for the rights of Muslim women.

about us

We advocate for the rights of Muslim women through our programs, casework, research, publications and consultancy.

We believe that Muslim women must be the impetus for change in their status as citizens. We take a non-religious, non-sectarian approach to our work and apply a social justice lens to it. 

As one of the leading voices on Muslim women’s rights in Australia, we support a vision of Islam at its most progressive, immediate and pertinent to the challenges that Muslim women face.

Our Resources

The Australian Muslim Women’s Centre for Human Rights produces a range of research and publications on topics relating to Muslim women in Australia.

Purpose

  • Working with individuals, communities and government to advocate and educate for equality within the Australian context.

Vision

Our Vision

We work to achieve Equality without Exception.

We advocate for the rights of all Muslim women through our programs, casework, research, publications and consultancy.

Our Work

experts at leading change

In realising our vision, we use a human rights framework to amplify the voices of Muslim women. We acknowledge the inherent agency that Muslim women have. 

Our research, programs and services aim to build capacity and raise awareness to break down structural barriers that exist for Muslim women in Australia, both within Muslim communities and in broader social and political contexts.  

Our consulting and training services build the capacity of organisations and partners to respond to Muslim communities through culturally safe, awareness-raising training. This work draws on the expertise we’ve built through working with Muslim women and young Muslims since 1991.
