Who We Are:
Muslim Women for All Women In 2005, against the backdrop of a post-9/11 world, a diverse group of Muslim women representing different countries came together to launch Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation.
Their goal: as Muslim women, to stand for peace and to make a positive contribution to the community in which they live.
From that meeting, Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation was born, along with their mission to empower all women and their families.
They believe that by promoting and supporting women and their families, they can build stronger communities based in cultural awareness and understanding.
What they Do their mission is to empower, promote and support all women and their families, with a special focus on North Texas.
