The Muslim's Women's Research and Action Front considers the appointment of a
committee to examine Muslim Personal Law in the light of reform as a positive
step in the socio-legal and cultural upliftment of the community.
MWRAF as a group of committed and concerned Muslim women wishes to suggest a basis
for reforms, though we would like to reiterate the fact that our framework is
within the Qur'an and Sharia and the proposed changes would in effect be
implementation of not only the letter of the law but also the spirit of the law-
in other words the essence of the Qur'an
WLUML, the Center for Women’s Global Leadership, Shirkat Gah, and the Women’s International Coalition for Economic Justice are running this workshop during the AWID Forum, taking place from 3-6 Ocober in Mexico.
