minimum wish is to abolish all
misogynist legislation, the abolition of death by stoning, abolition of compulsory veil, an end to
sexual apartheid, women’s right to divorce, the right to gain custody of their
children after separation. , the right to control their own body, the right to enter homosexual or bisexual
relationships, an end to the interference of religion in every aspect of
women’s lives, we demand liberation and emancipation of women from exploitation
