A conference held on 14th January in London by Roj Women’s Association, the International Free Women Foundation and the Organization for Women’s Freedom in Iraq focused on stoning and execution in different parts of the world in particular Iran. A collective resolution was born out of it.
Speakers raised their concern about gross violations of women’s rights under Islamic Sharia Law and the politicization of religion. They explained that the immense sufferings women face are not limited to one country or a particular culture although they do differ from one place to another, in different contexts.
Murdering women through stoning and execution is sanctioned by all states and governments are responsible for creating cultures that make women’s life enjoyable. However, in many countries violence has become a routine which the society tolerates.
