Working with our local community to empower, and build bridges, Muslim Women of Merton are a voluntary group of proactive professionals. The group was formed in 2015, with an aim to provide a voice and platform for Muslim women to engage with the wider South West London community, raising awareness of Muslim women as resilient CAN do members of society, not silent bystanders.
MWM is about outwardly engaging Muslim women who wish to make a difference in their local community by embodying the principles of lived Islam.

- Advocacy including local civic engagement
Our members have particular interests in:
