← Dare we stand up for Muslim women?

It is just one tactic in a global war to keep Muslim women at heel.

I wish people would stop using language like this. It makes it sound like there is some overarching governmental conspiracy responsible for these continual violations of human rights, but it really is common, everyday individuals that are to blame for the perpetuation. I'm not convinced that provisions in the Iraqi constitution would have changed anything; the culture of religious bigotry is rooted in far deeper places than administrative law.
