Our first meeting was held in August 1991. It was attended by Muslim women across the community and welfare sectors. In December 2012, our name was changed to the Australian Muslim Women’s Centre for Human Rights to better reflect our significant role as a human rights defender. This change recognises the singularity of our voice and work on Muslim women’s human rights across Australia.
Since our inception, we have created and helped develop programs, services, advocacy and research initiatives that elevate and amplify the voices of Muslim women in Australia.
