Women Living Under Muslim Laws & Institute for Women’s Empowerment

This book presents the strategies used by partners to advance women’s rights in the face of culturally justified disempowerment and discusses their implementation in different contexts and in different thematic areas.

This compilation is intended as a living resource, which will be amended and added to as women and organisations apply the strategies listed here to their own contexts, or try out new ones.

It is, moreover, intended as a basis for exchanges, cooperation and solidarity, showing that women in very different countries and societies face similar forms of oppression, and that coordinated action is vital for resistance and change  in a connected world.
