Egypt: Court rejects Saadawi forcible divorce case
Source:International Campaign to Support Nawal el-Saadawi
Egyptian court rules that no individual can petition a court to forcibly divorce another person.
A Cairo court on Monday (30th August 2001) threw out a petition by an Islamist lawyer who sought to forcibly divorce outspoken feminist Nawal Al Saadawi from her Muslim husband on the grounds that she had abandoned her Islamic faith. Thank you for all of your support!!
