Women’s Organisation of the Waikato Muslim Association (WOWMA)

Waikato Muslim sisters have been active locally as well as nationally in the Islamic circles.  They helped organise the fourth national conference of Islamic Women’s Council of New Zealand (IWCNZ) in Hamilton Islamic Centre in 1994.  Another IWCNZ conference was held five years later inside the new mosque in 1999.  In 2007 the Women’s Organisation of the Waikato Muslim Association (WOWMA) was founded with the aim of helping Muslim women’ integration into New Zealand society by connecting them with each other, New Zealand culture, tradition and history.  More information about WOWMA activities can be found here.
