Muslim Women Australia

We are a representative body for Muslim women working to enrich humanity, advocating for equality and the rights of all women, through authentic leadership based on our Islamic principles

About MWA

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.
