  • Why the EFOMW?

    The European Forum of Muslim Women has been created at the beginning of 2006, following a series of the European Coordination of Muslim female associations active in several European countries.

    It works within the European Union for the consolidation of bonds and the exchange of experience between the various members in order to support the involvment of the Muslim woman in the society as a citizen and to better response to her worries and to defend her interests and apply to the European and international authorities.

    So officials associations from different European countries participated in working meetings and exchange, and this since 2003. The issues that were central to discussions of this platform issues emerged on the commitment of Muslim women in European society and its arrangements for its complete success. Another concern is the increasing discrimination and racism against him.After three years of coordination and cooperation between various Muslim women’s associations in Europe, and before the conclusion of the vacuum on the representation of Muslim women in Europe, an urgent request was felt to stand as an interlocutor with the authorities European civil society or official organizations and associations of Muslim and non Muslim.This coordination has therefore decided to create the EFOMW (European Forum Of Muslim Women). Such a Forum could speak on behalf of Muslim women in Europe, their problems, their aspirations and could provide the social realities of Muslim women and defend their causes. Several sites will be the focus of reflection for the promotion of the culture of dialogue, guaranteeing the right to live together in Europe, shared future for all.
