Egypt’s women urge MPs not to pass early marriage, sex-after-death laws: report
RRD:Previously I warned that there was a very real risk that Islamists could come to power in Egypt.(fn1).
Now the Egyptian Government is seriously considering legislation that would lower the age of marriage to 14,curtail a woman’s right to divorce & her right to get a education and–bizarrely even for Islamists–permit a husband to perform sex acts upon his wife’s corpse.
Local Women’s Rights groups are protesting and it remains to be seen whether this insanity will become law.
A brief comment on my stance on the January 25th revolution:Political Islam is not the answer. | Glory to man in the highest
