CEDAW andMUSLIM FAMILY LAWS
In Search of Common Ground
The Musawah research project on the Convenon on the Eliminaon of All Forms of Discriminaon against Women (CEDAW) examined States pares’ jusficaons fortheir failure to implement CEDAW with regard to family laws and pracces thatdiscriminate against Muslim women. The research reviewed documents for 44Muslim majority and minority countries that reported to the CEDAW Commieefrom 2005-2010.This report documents the trends idenfied in the review, and presents Musawah’sresponses to these jusficaons based on its holisc Framework for Acon. Itincludes recommendaons to the CEDAW Commiee for a deeper engagement andmore meaningful dialogue on the connecons between Muslim family laws andpracces and internaonal human rights standards.Musawah is a global movement of women and men who believe that equality and jusce in the Muslim family are necessary and possible. In the 21
st
century therecannot be jusce without equality; the me for equality and jusce is now!Equality in the family is the foundaon for equality in society. Families in all theirmulple forms are central to our lives, and should be a safe and happy space,equally empowering for all.Musawah builds on centuries of effort to promote and protect equality and juscein the family and in society.Musawah is led by Muslim women who seek to publicly reclaim Islam’s spirit of  jusce for all.Musawah acts together with individuals and groups to grow the movement, buildknowledge and advocate for change on mulple levels.Musawah uses a holisc framework that integrates Islamic teachings, universalhuman rights, naonal constuonal guarantees of equality, and the lived realiesof women and men.Musawah was launched in February 2009 at a Global Meeng in Kuala Lumpur,Malaysia, aended by over 250 women and men from 47 countries of Africa, Asia,Europe, the Middle East, North America and the Pacific.
