About the Organisation

Organisation Name : Australian Muslim Women's Centre for Human Rights

The Australian Muslim Women’s Centre for Human Rights (AMWCHR) is an organisation of Muslim women working to advance the rights and status of Muslim women in Australia. They believe that Muslim women must be the impetus for change in their status as citizens. The diversity of Muslim communities in Australia means that there is insufficient consensus on critical issues related to the status of Muslim women in Islam. Therefore, they are a non-religious organisation.

AMWCHR provide practical resources for women that improve their lives in tangible and measurable ways. They work with individuals and groups, managing casework, outreach, advocacy, policy and community based programs and service delivery. They also work on partnership projects and in collaboration with other service providers to build capacity.
