Egypt: Regressive calls for repealing personal status code & children’s code

المصدر: 
Egyptian Center for Women's Rights

The Egyptian Center for Women's Rights and the Egyptian Coalition for Civil Education and Women's Participation follow up the regressive calls for repealing the social laws in Egypt such as the personal status code and the children’s code in a great worry. These codes were previously amended in order to guarantee the rights of human-beings, including women and children. Those amendments did not reach the extent of an approval of the rights of women and children as fully eligible citizens. This matter needs a social discussion that aims at achieving the principles of human rights for which the Egyptian people lead by young men and women were calling for in the 25th of January Revolution.

We assure that such calls for repealing laws come in the course of distorting the Egyptian Revolution and its principles. Such voices found a chance to distort the revolution and ruin its social gains instead of developing the society socially and economically and instead of taking into account the issues of educational and legislative reform, including the victory of the revolution.

We are calling on the military council, the transitional government, all concerned people and civil organizations in Egypt to take a clear stance against such regressive powers and to assure the principles of democracy and human rights.

We are also calling for the assurance of not abandoning the social gains with the pretext that those laws are laws of Mrs. Suzan or Jihan or others; a lot of intellectual people in the Egyptian society, whether men or women, fought for decades for these social gains. Such a pretext is an insult to all the free organizations that worked for social reform in Egypt, because the real victory of the revolution is represented in the preservation of human rights and not in the repeal of these rights.
