The present ultra conservative Muslim Brother’s government is in the process of modifying & writing the constitution. In a nutshell, they want to limit a woman’s role to just being a wife, children bearer & a mother. It doesn’t include any items about her rights & her role in the society or even marriage because the wording of the constitution is written so to condone the marriage of 9 years old girls & also to have their genitals mutilated. I would have loved to translate the above & the recommendation a written by Attorney Mona Zulficar, but unfortunately pressed with time. Please help us by sharing and taking a stand.
Here is the link to the draft: Sorry it’s in Arabic. But in a nut shell, it ignores women’s and children’s rights.
