Musawah's latest publication takes a fresh look at Muslim legal tradition, presenting exciting new feminist research from within the tradition, and challenging discrimination and the assumption of male authority.
Musawah is a knowledge building movement. It facilitates access to existing knowledge and creates new knowledge about women's rights in Islam. We seek to apply feminist and rights-based lenses in understanding and searching for equality and justice with Muslim legal traditions. Find out more
Musawah contributes to building a public voice of women leaders demanding for an alternative understanding of Islam, one that recognises equality and justice in the context of changing times and circumstances. The Musawah Course Islam & Gender Equality and Justice (I-nGEJ) is designed for women's and human rights activists from Muslim countries and communities throughout the world. Find out more
Musawah serves to strengthen women's voices at the regional and international levels and raise the visibility of initiatives for equality and justice in the Muslim family. A key strategy is engagement with the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), and its treaty body, the CEDAW Committee. Find out more
