The International Campaign
Against the Civil Law of Kurdistan - Iraq
After two months of discussions and disputes, The Parliament of Kurdistan in Iraq has passed the Civil Law of Kurdistan, despite the protests and objections, by many activists and secularists. The recently-passed Civil Law establishes, unequivocally, slavery and inferiority of women by stressing gender discrimination against them in various aspects. The new law encourages man to marry more than one woman while imposing a male ?guardian? on women, promoting practices of trading women for money at marriage, and maintaining inferiority for women in cases of inheritance, in addition to other discriminatory rules derived from the Islamic misogynist Shari?a Law. The embracing of this reactionary law by the ruling nationalist-Islamist forces dominating the parliament is a stark violation of women?s rights. For the past 17 years, the track-record of those forces clearly shows thousands of violations against women, promotion of religious and tribal practices and values, and heinous crimes of "honor killings" perpetrated against thousands of women in Kurdistan. We believe that the humanitarian forces can fight this discriminatory law and depose it.
We, the undersigned, announce the launch of our international campaign against Civil Law in Kurdistan - Iraq which aims at:
1. The immediate abolition of the Civil Law, passed by the parliament of Kurdistan.
2. The firm opposition and struggle against all forms of slavery and sexual discrimination against women.
3. The prohibition of any form of interference of Islamic Shari?a or any religious law in the family or public life, and the complete separation of religion from state.
4. Presenting an alternative of secular Civil Law which is based on the principals of full equality between women and men and the most contemporary standards which shall prohibit:
a.       Polygamy unconditionally,
b.       Trading or dowry for the bride or any such practices in marriage
c.       Any form of pressure and coercion whether by an individual or party on the woman in her right to choose a partner or spouse, and decision about their mutual life
d.       Any restrictions on women?s equal right to proceed with separation or divorce.
We call upon all equality and freedom lovers, all egalitarians and secularists, all groups or individuals who believe in gender equality, whether in Kurdistan, in Iraq, or around the world, to endorse this campaign by adding their names and signatures and promote it widely.

Men are always afraid of the supreme superiority of women over men. Demanding equality would be a prise for men, yet they are persistant to learn the hard way !
