Dear reverend female Shura members, perhaps you remember how we celebrated you and how we were thrilled when we heard of the news that 30 females have been assigned to the Shura council. Perhaps you remember how we refused that anyone should spoil our joy or doubt the efficiency and the role of females at an institution governed by bureaucracy and limited jurisdictions. We said that women are not superior creatures but they are individuals who have civil rights and who have the right to gain the experience of working in society’s institutions to benefit themselves and others. We said that women’s work at the Shura council may be an opportunity in which they excel or become equal with others and in which they learn and gain more experience.
How can the society become normal when its women are married off when they are still minors and when they are put through the jeopardy of delivering babies at such a young age and forced to raise their kids with no experience whatsoeverBadria al-Bishr
