During the 66th session on Sri Lanka, a local lobby group Muslim Personal Law Reforms Action Group (MPLRAG) submitted a specific shadow report on Muslim women's issues related to Article 16 of the CEDAW Convention. Musawah was consulted in the final draft stage of the report which highlighted discriminatory legal provisions of the 1951 Muslim Marriage and Divorce Act (MMDA) and the impacts on Muslim women and girls in Sri Lanka.
