Basira

What Basira will be standing for:

  • Absolute protection for women’s dignity through demands for Gender equality, education, work, divorce, inheritance, vote, ownership and full citizenship.

  • Freedom for women in  thought, expression, belief or disbelief, movement without needing permission from any guardian, body, clothing, decision making,  marriage or non-marriage.

  • The abolition of all laws, practices and fatwas violating the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and women’s rights, such as, stoning, lashing, the laws acquitting rapists who marries his victim, or tolerating crimes of ‘honor’ and to criminalize female gentile mutilation.

  • Protection against domestic violence, sexual harassment and all forms of physical and psychological abuse and discrimination facing women today in the Arab world and beyond.

Basira decided to carry the voice of voiceless women to the international world, and to keep battling fearlessly for their FULL rights. Because we are committed to democracy and international security and that will not be achieved with security and justice for women.

We call upon Arab man to remind him that, woman gives life, and the one whom he leans on in life, without her no meaning to life, her love give brightness to life, justice for her will guarantees security in this life, lets work together to empower our women to never accept injustice and oppression, with new culture that guarantee equality between men and women.

The equality that will convince the man to stand by the woman as an equal partner supporting her rights, because justice is blind and does not differentiate between male and female.
