About Us

Aawaaz-e-Niswaan (voice of women) is a vibrant feminist collective of students, academicians, activists from the women’s movement and women who daily confront violations of their rights and evolve strategies to combat them.

Defined by the lived reality of women who continue to struggle for their human rights in the context of patriarchy and communalism, Aawaaz-e-Niswaan has consistently sought to speak up for the rights of all women, even as our work focuses on Muslim women’s issues.

We believe that we are a part of a wider sisterhood of women, and that irrespective of caste or religion the challenges faced by women within a patriarchal society remain more or less the same. However keeping in mind the intricacies and complexities of the problems faced by Muslim women we have focused on the issues faced by them and issues related to the voice and representation of Muslim women.
