Individuals and NGOs from some fifty countries around the world are involved with Musawah and include activists, scholars, academics, legal practitioners and policy-makers.
Across North Africa, sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, South Asia, Central Asia, Europe, North America and Australasia, Musawah Advocates share information with activists in other countries working towards equality and justice in the family.
