Muslim Women Australia – formerly Muslim Women Association, was established in 1983, making us over 35 years old. Our vision is to provide Australian women of diverse backgrounds with the opportunities to enable them to actively participate in and contribute to Australia’s culturally and religiously diverse society. We are committed to fairness, equality and justice in all our interactions and activities that support women from diverse backgrounds.
Settlement Support is an early intervention program that provides a variety of support services to newly arrived migrants and refugees living in Australia.
MWA offers programs for Muslim women, youth, seniors and mothers to nurture women’s health and well and well-being in a safe, supported environment.
MWA is happy to refine your organisational or governmental polices to be inclusive and respectful of people of all faiths and cultures.
Linking Hearts provides domestic violence and homelessness support to women and families from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

We, at Muslim Women Australia, acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the Traditional owners of the land on which we stand, and pay our respect to Elders past, present and emerging. We recognise the rich cultural heritage of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and the importance of preserving their connection to the land.
We also recognise the indigenous people of Palestine. The history and struggles of the Palestinian people are deeply rooted, and we acknowledge their enduring connection to their land, as well as their ongoing pursuit of justice and self-determination.
In recognising both the traditional custodians of this land, Australia, and the indigenous people of Palestine, we acknowledge the importance of understanding and respecting the histories, cultures, and rights of all indigenous communities. It is a reminder that we should strive for a world where diversity is celebrated, and the rights of all indigenous peoples are upheld.
