In a Press Statement issued by Sisters in Islam (SIS), the Malaysian women's group, one of the most well-known nongovernment groups in this Muslim-majority country, registered their happiness with the decision by Sultan of Pahang, Duli Yang Maha Mulia Tuanku Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah, to commute Kartika’s caning sentence to community service. According to Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarno's father, Kartika received a letter dated March 26 from the Pahang state Islamic and Malay Culture Council on Wednesday, informing her the Pahang Sultan had decided to spare her the caning. Kartika, a former part-time model, was sentenced in July last year to six strokes of the cane and a fine RM5,000 for drinking beer in December 2007 at a beach resort, in violation of 'Sharia' laws. Meanwhile, The Malaysian Assembly of Mosque Youth (MAMY) is seeking an order from the High Court to prevent SIS Forum (Malaysia) from using “Sisters In Islam” as its name and identity because of its criticism of the application of these laws.

The Women Living Under Muslim Laws (WLUML) international solidarity network expresses its solidarity with Gita Sahgal, a longstanding ally of the network who is active in various organisations, collectives, and movements committed to upholding universal human rights. WLUML has learned that she has repeatedly raised internal inquiries into Amnesty International’s association with the organisation Cageprisoners, headed by Moazzam Begg, around the Counter Terror with Justice Campaign. On 7 February 2010, Sahgal was suspended from her position as Head of the Gender Unit at Amnesty International. You can take action by signing the Global Petition in support of Gita Sahgal which now has over 1,800 signatories.

C'est une copie d'un texte original de Gender Equality for Iran: "En Iran, le mouvement des femmes est, depuis ces trente dernières années, à l’avant-garde de la lutte pour la démocratie. Comme les discriminations sexistes sont en lien étroit avec d’autres discriminations : sociales, politiques, religieuses et ethniques, la résistance pacifique des femmes, leur lutte contre les violences et les discriminations impactent de manière conséquente le développement des mouvements démocratiques au sein de la société iranienne. Depuis de nombreuses années, avec l’organisation de différentes campagnes et leurs revendications pour l’égalité, les femmes iraniennes marchent sur le chemin de la liberté. Dans ce processus, elles subissent la répression : insultes, violences, arrestations et emprisonnements. Nombreuses sont celles aujourd’hui emprisonnées.

يستضيف موقع "نساء في ظل قوانين المسلمين" هذا البيان المترجم بتصرف عن نص وثيقة موقع "دعوة للتضامن: الحرية والمساواة النوعية" في إيران، والذي سيجري تدشينه في شهر فبراير المقبل. 
نحن-مجموعة من النسويات وناشطات حقوق النساء الإيرانيات-نطالب بوضع نهاية للعنف والقمع الممارس من قبل السلطات، داعين في الوقت ذاته إلى الإفراج الفوري لكل المعتقلين السياسين في البلاد.
كما ندعو كذلك كل المدافعين عن حقوق النساء، والنشطاء والمنظمات حول العالم للتظاهر تعبيرا عن التضامن مع الحركة النسائية الإيرانية ومع الحركة الأوسع التي تطالب بالديمقراطية في إيران من خلال تنظيم مبادرات تحت شعار "الحرية والمساواة فى إيران" خلال شهر مارس 2010.

This is a copy of an original text that can be found on the Gender Equality for Iran website here. "We (a group of Iranian feminists and women’s rights activists) demand an end to state-led violence and repression, as well as the immediate release of all political detainees in Iran. We invite all women’s rights defenders, activists, organisations, and networks worldwide to demonstrate their solidarity with the Iranian women’s movement and the broader movement for democracy in Iran by organising initiatives under the slogan “freedom and gender equality in Iran” throughout March 2010. 

The International Solidarity network, Women Living Under Muslim Laws, joins civil society groups and organisations such as Amnesty International, The Feminist school, The International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran and The Observatory in condemning the recent wave of arrests of over 18 women's rights activists and the harsh sentences passed on three journalists in December 2009 and January 2010.

The Hail Emirate has received official orders to implement the recent sentence handed down against the defendants in the case of Khamisa Sawadi, issued by members of the Committee to Promote Virtue and Prevent Vice in the City of Shamli (170 kilometers south of Hail), which was known in the media as 'The case of the elderly woman of Shamli'. Saudi sources have confirmed to Emirati newspaper, Gulf News, that the woman is still in her house and the sentence has not been carried out yet.

The Women Living Under Muslim Laws (WLUML) international solidarity network and the Global Campaign to Stop Killing and Stoning Women! (SKSW Campaign) join their allies in Indonesia in continuing to call for the repeal of a law (or 'qanun') passed by the Aceh Legislative Council (DPRD) on Monday 14 September 2009, that expands the range of violent punishments for alleged moral and sexual transgressions, including stoning to death for “adultery” and 100 lashes for homosexuality.
