Welcome to AMWA
Assalaam 'alaikum or peace be with you.
Established in 2010 this organisation represents the interests and concerns of Aussie women - those born here, converted to Islam, or who identify as much with Australia as their ancestral background.
Support for Muslim women is often limited to cultural associations and religious classes. There are many areas though where Muslim women may need advice, assistance or mentoring. Some of the areas that we hope to address are listed in the About Us section.
Contact us for information, check out our blog, or check our Facebook page and find out what issues and events are big for Muslims in Australia.
Statement following Sydney Shooting
On behalf of the Australian Muslim Women's Association we would like to express our extreme sadness at the senseless murder of the NSW Police officer, Curtis Cheng, and the subsequent death of a young boy. Our thoughts are with the families of the deceased and the injured.
We appreciate the comments of Police Commissioner Scipione, the Premier Mike Baird and the Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in calling for a united front in responding to this crisis. The majority of the Muslim community is willing to co-operate in a full and fair investigation of this tragedy and has an unequivocal opposition to any violence inflicted on our soil.
We trust that the investigation into this matter will be thorough and that all parties will work together to identify how such a young man could so tragically take the shocking decision to kill a representative of the police force.
The Australian Muslim Women's Association calls on its fellow Australians to work with us in ensuring that messages of hate and violence should be replaced with messages of mutual respect and understanding - as enshrined in the teachings of Islam - in dealing with the challenges affecting our global community today.
