- MWNUK Principle 2 - We uncover and tackle uncomfortable truths fearlessly, honestly and independently by taking action, which is always in the interests of Muslim women and girls.
- MWNUK Principle 3 - We are informed by the voices of Muslim women and girls by gathering evidence of their lived experiences.
- MWNUK Principle 4 - We bring about real change through innovative thinking and doing, which positively affects the treatment of Muslim women and girls, resulting in a better society for all.
- MWNUK Principle 5 - We demonstrate our inclusivity and non-judgmental stance throughout our policies, procedures and our work.
