Femmes sous Lois Musulmanes (Women Living Under Muslim Laws-WLUML) et son réseau de partenaires se sentent profondément concernés par les négociations en cours au sein de la 57ème Commission sur la Condition de la Femme (CSW), qui, cette année, se concentre sur la prévention et l’élimination de toutes formes de violence à l’égard des femmes et des filles. La CSW s’appuie sur des accords internationaux relatifs aux droits humains déjà établis. Cependant, les États qui attaquent la CSW se servent d’arguments fondés sur la religion, la culture et la tradition afin de justifier les violences et les discriminations à l’égard des femmes et de permettre des violations de leurs droits fondamentaux.

تعرب شبكة "النساء في ظل قوانين المسلمين" وشركاؤها عن قلقها العميق من طبيعة المفاوضات الجارية في  اجتماعات لجنة وضع المرأة في دورتها 57 التي تركز هذا العام على القضاء ومنع جميع أشكال العنف ضد النساء والفتيات. إن لجنة وضع المرأة تبني عملها على الاتفاقات الدولية القائمة بالفعل في مجال حقوق الإنسان للمرأة. ومع ذلك، فإن الحكومات التي تهاجم لجنة وضع المرأة تستخدم الحجج القائمة على أساس الدين، والثقافة، والتقاليد لتبرير العنف والتمييز ضد المرأة والسماح بانتهاكات لحقوقهم الإنسانية الأساسية

 

Women Living Under Muslim Laws (WLUML) and its network partners are deeply concerned with the negotiations taking place at the 57th Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) which this year focuses on the elimination and prevention of all forms of violence against women and girls. The CSW is building on already established international agreements on women’s human rights. However, governments attacking the CSW are using arguments based on religion, culture, and tradition to justify violence and discrimination towards women and allow violations of their fundamental human rights.

We, the undersigned organisations and individuals, as represented in the Arab Caucus at the 57th Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), are deeply concerned with the role of the leadership of our countries in the negotiations on the crucial issue of violence against women and girls.

We, the undersigned organisations and individuals across the globe, are again alarmed and disappointed that the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) is wavering in its commitment to advance women’s human rights as demonstrated in the constant negotiation of the language in the outcome document continues.

Women Living Under Muslim Laws is partnering with the Stop Stoning Forever Campaign (Iran), the Research Institute for Women Peace & Security (Afghanistan), the Women's Intercultural Network, and the Women's UN Report Network to host a panel on stoning as an act of violence against women at the 57th Commission at the Status of Women at the United Nations in New York.This not-to-be-missed event will be held on Friday, March 8, 2013 at 2:30pm at the Church Center for the UN - 10th Floor, 777 United Nations Plaza and is open to the public.
