Our values

AWSA-Be’s key concepts are…


The separation of religion and state. Practising a religion is an individual freedom which should not interfere with other individual freedoms. Being secular does not exclude having a religious conviction or practising a religion.



To promote the rights and the role of women in society. Being a feminist does not mean to be against men, but to be committed to the equality of women and men.



Abolishing discriminating laws and practices so as to enable every person to make their own choices.
