We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.



The uprising of women in the Arab world

"TOGETHER FOR FEARLESS, FREE & INDEPENDENT WOMEN IN THE ARAB WORLD"

"time for women and men to unite against the oppression of women in the arab world. To say no to violence against women, no to their allegiance to men, no to repression and abuse, no to their treatment as second class citizens.

We demand the full application of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights for arab women just as for men. This chart comes before any State, any culture, any tradition, any mentality.

Let's spread the word and create a strong solidarity network, share our views, denounce the absurd laws of our respective countries, and share updates about the progress and changes that we are working on.

TOGETHER FOR FEARLESS, FREE, INDEPENDENT WOMEN IN THE ARAB WORLD !"

Women's rights are human rights. I'm glad to see those who support the initiative.

I'm in total agreement and if there was a petition going around for arab women,I would sign it...

Women being human, must be treated as such! We want equal rights and opportunities for women and men in all societies.

Exactly. Equal rights make for a just society.

Yay for women everywhere, but women in muslim countries are top of the list - what bloody strong women an Atheist is, in a muslim country.

Facebook campaign for women’s rights goes global

A women’s rights group has launched a social media campaign to promote women’s rights across the Arab world.

The Uprising of Women in the Arab World group launched the campaign on 1 October, encouraging Facebook and Twitter users (female and male) to upload photographs of themselves holding a sign reading “I am with the uprising of women in the Arab world because…” followed by their reason to support the cause. Since the launch of the campaign, to mark the anniversary of the launch of the group, there have been over 200 replies with more being posted each day.

The group was started in October 2011 by four female activists, Yalda Younes, Diala Haidar from Lebanon, Farah Barqawi from Palestine and Sally Zohney from Egypt. They started the group to harness the social and political progress of the Arab spring. They believe that the calls that came from across the Arab world for freedom, justice and dignity cannot be fully achieved without the inclusion of women.

The group’s slogan is, “together for free, independent and fearless women in the Arab world.” Currently the main source of contact for the group is through their Facebook page and Twitter account. They receive posts from all over the Arab world, however support has also come from as far afield as Spain, Sweden, America, Brazil and Italy.

The group has many demands including, “absolute” freedom of thought, the right to autonomy, equality with men, the abolishment of all laws violating the Universal Declaration of Human rights and protection against domestic violence.

I fear this will do more harm then good.

Gotta start somewhere. This is what the Suffragettes went through, and many died doing it. But with the internet, the word is getting out more and more, every day, and all the women want at this stage, is support from outside. My freedom in Australia, is because of what Suffragettes went through in England, and I am eternally grateful. They possibly, and probably will go through shite, even torture - but that is women for you.

Not a single suffragette that I know of died in Canada, they made plays mocking every argument men used against women having the right to vote. Nellie Mclung. Our policies must be motivated to minimize as much blood and human suffering without willfully sacrificing innocent life.

There is no comparison with Canada/Australia and a muslim controlled country.

The secretary for the Women’s Social & Political Union (WSPU) Birmingham branch described the “anguish” of having a tube forced into her nostrils or down her throat and food poured in that hadn’t been properly cooked or softened:

And, we have the vote, we are getting our education, we don't have to have a bloke with us when we go out, we take the chance of not being covered,  but all those uncontrollable men just might go berserk. Australian and Canadian women, would not be able to have these rights, without Suffragettes, just another name for women to endure torture for their human rights.

One will eventually become militant, and happily do so, if one is not living in a Democracy.

A 14-year old Pakistani activist who championed education for girls has been shot in the head by a Taliban gunman.

Thank you Neal - When more men get on board with this, numbers will grow, and it will only leave the blokes with small penises, with no respect for women, left on their own. It will take a while - but it will happen. A lot of good men in muslim countries, just not enough of them.

The story about the young Pakistani story is obscene. Hard to have a peaceful revolution when you're tortured, abused or killed.

yes, I know, Ive been of the opinion for years that we need to step up the drone strike frequency. Im saying don't use such strong measures unless you can win. Our experiment to create a secular state that respects individual liberty in the middle east cost half a million lives.
