Domestic violence task force

To be a resource and support for women affected by domestic violence, MWO has started a task force to focus on proactive ways to assist women in their time of urgent need. A program is also being developed working with Harbor House of Central Florida, a local domestic violence shelters to train members to be advocates and help the shelters better provide for the needs of Muslim women.  The MWO is also a member of the Orange County Domestic Violence Task Force.  To be a part of this initiative, please contact Sana Imam at dv@mwo-orlando.org

Gender Equity & Social Responsibility Initiative

The Muslim Women’s Organization (MWO) is proud to announce that we will be launching a Gender Equity and Social Responsibility Initiative. As an organization that often challenges the status quo to empower women, the MWO’s vision of establishing a world in which every Muslim woman has the opportunity to lead in the service of humanity can only be fulfilled if we equip all women with the tools needed to transform lives without fear of being discriminated against due to any divisive bigotry that exists in today’s society.
