घरोघरी मुलीनाही आनंदाने जगण्याचा अधिकार आहे
आणि आम्ही तो मिळवणारच

It is registered under the Bombay Public Trust Act and the Registration of Societies Act. It is an affiliate of one of the oldest all India women's organisations, the National Federation of Indian Women (NFIW), that had the distinct honour of having Bharat-Ratna Aruna Asaf Ali as its all India President. Dr.Aruna Roy is the present all India president of NFIW.
Aims and objectives of BMF Thanementioned in the constitution of the organisation are attached separately.
The organisation is a metamorphosis of a small group of volunteers who made a modest beginning at the end of International Women's Decade in 1985 by venturing into the activity of giving relief to women in crisis. Disturbed by the sordid state of affairs confronting women and children in our society the group worked tenaciously mustering support of many like-minded individuals and the Family Counselling Centre was institutionalised.
