All Women’s Action Society (AWAM) is an independent feminist organisation committed to improving the lives of women in Malaysia.
Our mission is to inform, connect and mobilise those interested in securing women’s rights, bringing about equality among men and women, and supporting women in crisis. We also build the capabilities of those who work for the empowerment of women and social transformation.
AWAM develops programmes to gain a foothold in accessing women’s rights in order to build a gender-equal society. These include counselling services, legal assistance, training and public education to create and spread awareness on issues of violence against women. We also actively lobby policymakers and advocate for improved legislation and practices by bringing forward the concerns of women.
AWAM envisions a society free of violence. Join us and contribute to this vision. To learn more, visit www.awam.org.my
