|Australian Muslim Womens Association||
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, follow us on Facebook and Instagram and check out our blog to find out what issues and events are big for Muslims in Australia and around the World.
Currently AMWA is online only and providing support to converts or those with questions about Islam due to COVID-19 and other restrictions.
Recent Events at AMWA
The Australian Muslim Women's Association recently ran a Roundtables - across Sydney. In the process voices of our Muslim women were heard about the issues that they are facing, what programs were working or not working for them, and what solutions could be worked on together. Particularly the role of being heard by leadership - whether community or government was a prime consideration.
The Report is able to be downloaded below.
GET TO KNOW MUSLIMS !!!
A great way to find out more about Islam and Muslims is to visit a Mosque !!! This picture is of a Sydney Ladies Walking Group who spent their monthly gathering with us some time ago on a Tour of Auburn Gallipoli Mosque followed by Lunch in a local Auburn Restaurant. It was a lovely day where many questions were answered and misconceptions were cleared up!!
Please contact your local mosque to organise a visit and connect with your local Muslim community.
