Musawah was initiated in March 2007 by Sisters in Islam, a Malaysian non-governmental organisation that promotes women's rights within the framework of Islam, and a twelve-member international planning committee of activists and scholars from eleven countries. The committee came together to consolidate information, experiences, and ideas that have been used by NGOs and activists in countries around the world to advance equality in the family.
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. Many of us have conducted national consultations on equality in the family, participated in the Musawah 2009 Global Meeting, and contributed to the conceptual framework that guides Musawah's work.
