الحملة العالمية لوقف قتل ورجم النساء! في 26 نوفمبر 2007، ، بدأت شبكة فلومل (نساء في ظل قوانين المسلمين) بجامعة بلجي باسطنبول حملة عالمية لوقف قتل ورجم النساء، من أجل وضع حد لسوء الاستخدام الدائم للدين والثقافة لتبرير قتل النساء كعقاب لانتهاك "قوالب" السلوك الجنسي كما تفرضها وتعرفها الأهواء الشخصية.

This issue, with an improved format, features the addition of 'Activists Reflections', which present a selection of the articles we received in response to our online Call for Submissions. Reflecting the transnational nature and philosophy of the WLUML network, the articles and reports included in this newsletter range from Growing Talibanisation in Pakistan to Expanding International Legal Protections for Victims of Gender-Based Violence in Iraqi Kurdistan and the lobbying of the Gambian Committee Against Traditional Practices.
