Islam and Muslims oppose violence against women: a guide for Muslim women

This brochure is produced by the Australian Muslim Women’s Centre for Human Rights. It is also available in Arabic , Dari and Turkish. The website also has other useful resources and details of their projects.

About the Centre:

The Australian Muslim Women’s Centre for Human Rights is an organisation of Muslim women working to advance the rights and status of Muslim women in Australia.

We are a non religious organisation because we understand that the diversity of the Muslim community in Australia means that there is not sufficient consensus on critical issues related to the status of women in Islam. This recognition of diversity ensures our accessibility and relevance to all sects, schools and groups within the Muslim community.

As an organisation committed to human rights, we will not remain silent when Islam is used to undermine the status of Muslim women but will intervene in these instances with facts and informed analysis.
