Knowledge Building

Musawah 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 within Muslim legal tradition.

Capacity Building & Outreach

Musawah works to strengthen our sense of community and common purpose through capacity building and outreach to activists and CSO’s from Muslim contexts throughout the world.

International Advocacy

Musawah seeks to amplify women’s voices at the regional and international levels and raise the visibility of initiatives advocating for equality and justice in the Muslim family.

Communications

Musawah communications activities raise the visibility of Musawah and the work of Musawah Advocates, popularize the Musawah Framework for Action and Musawah publications, and share linkages and knowledge among broader communities

A Toolkit For Advocates

We want to get everyone talking about the issues of equality and justice in the family and about Musawah. The Toolkit only suggests some ways of thinking about Muslim family laws and practices: it’s the debate and open discussion that’s important.
