In the winter 2011 issue of the WLUML newsletter, we feature an article on blasphemy laws and women’s rights in Pakistan, following the death sentence of a Christian woman, Asia Bibi, for blasphemy in November 2010 – the first conviction of its kind for a woman. We also interview Iranian activist and WLUML networker, Mahboubeh Abbasgholizadeh, who won the 2010 Johann Philipp Palm Prize for defending freedom of expression and freedom of the press, on how she is continuing her activism work outside of Iran. 

En Iran, un an après les élections contestées de 2009, le mouvement des femmes est confronté à une répression croissante de la part des autorités. Nous publions un article de Leila Mouri, qui examine l’impact des restrictions gouvernementales sur le statut des femmes et sur leur activisme, aujourd’hui, en Iran. Toujours, à propos de l’Iran, nous faisons le point sur les événements dans l’affaire de Sakineh Mohammadi-Ashtiani, dont la condamnation à mort par lapidation, depuis lors ‘commuée’ en condamnation à mort par pendaison, a suscité, le mois dernier, une attention presque sans précédent dans les médias internationaux.

Dans ce bulletin, il y a des nouvelles sur le 4ème Institut pour le Leadership féministe du réseau Femmes sous lois musulmanes (WLUML), qui s’est tenu du 9 au 20 novembre 2009, à Dakar, Sénégal. La conférence a permis de renforcer les capacités en leadership, tout en encourageant la solidarité globale et la mise en place de réseaux entre femmes de divers contrées et communautés musulmanes.

In the summer issue of the WLUML newsletter, Fatou Sow asks: “To ban or not to ban the burqa?” – that is a question in the European Union; Belgium and France banned it lately, so the debate continues at a high political level amongst many other member states, provoking contradictory responses across the world. Meanwhile in Iran, a year after the disputed elections of 2009, the women’s movement faces growing suppression from the authorities. We feature an article by Leila Mouri, which examines the impact of the government crackdown on the status of women and their activism in Iran today.

Dans ce numéro, nous sommes heureuses du lancement du programme « Les femmes revendiquent et redéfinissent les cultures : affirmation des droits sur le corps, le soi et les espaces publics », une entreprise menée conjointement par Femmes vivant sous lois musulmanes et l’Institut IWE, qui rassemblera des femmes du monde musulman pour leur permettre d’examiner et de débattre de la façon dont les systèmes culturels, traditionnels et religieux sont utilisés comme instruments de légitimation de l’oppression qu’elles subissent.

The WLUML Newsletter has a new look! Introducing a more contemporary design and reader-friendly format, the Spring 2010 issue has all the same sections as Newsletter 8: Editorial and Solidarity; Campaigns; Women’s Empowerment and Activism; News from Networkers; Reviews; Events and Announcements. On this issue's cover are the objectives and strategies of the 4th WLUML Feminist Leadership Institute that took place in Dakar, Senegal, from 09-20 November, 2009 and on page 5 we hear from one of its participants, May El Sallab.

Nous avons continué nos activités de solidarité et de campagne autour de nos préoccupations communes en Afrique, au Moyen-Orient et en Asie : lapidations au Kurdistan et en Somalie ; harasse-ment sexuel à Bahreïn, répression politique et culturelle en Iran, en Malaisie, ...
