Push for women’s equality in Muslim family law

A new global movement has been set up to push for equality and justice for women in Muslim family law.

Musawah, meaning “equality” in Arabic, held its first international meeting in Kuala Lumpur in February, and brought together hundreds of Muslim scholars and activists. They argue that aspects of Muslim family law are neither compatible with the daily realities of women’s lives, nor defensible under Islamic principles.
