Home Truths: A Global Report on Equality in the Muslim Family (English)


Just as laws and practices vary from country to country, groups in different countries and contexts are at very different stages and have taken a variety of strategic approaches to advocate for equality and justice in the family. Many are pushing for progressive reform of existing laws or practices. In some, the challenge is to prevent regressive reform proposed by conservative Islamist groups or governments. In Muslim minority contexts, groups are trying to prevent negative practices from becoming legalised or accepted as normal. 

Home Truths shows some of this diversity and the struggles of women's groups and others to work for equality in the family supported by information provided by national groups.
