Take that Misogyny!
Liban just repealed their law allowing rapists to avoid procecution by marrying their victim ''Old Testament style''. It joins Tunisia and Jordan who both repealed a similar law a month earlier. Tunisia's president is also attempting to strike down a law that prevents Muslim women to marry non-Muslim men (the other way around is already legal). Algeria, Bahrain, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya and Syria (except in Rojava) still have those laws in effect. While it's an excellent news, there are still a mountain of work to be done in those countries (and quite a few in ours) to insure women's right to safety and equality, but a good news is always welcome.

Hopefully one day ALL can live with equal rights.

Ignorance is not to be ignored.

It's great news even if much more is to be done.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

I know we should celebrate every instance of enlightenment winning over darkness, but jeez. This is like clapping for the guy who crosses the finish line 97th out of 100. Yaaaaay Libya, you rock! Love the way you've decided letting rapists marry their victims is NOT awesome!

I confess to to not clicking on the link...from the OP I assumed "Liban" was "Libyans." That's actually disappointing for me, I thought Lebannon was a bit more advanced in treatment of women than some of their neighbors. Good for them though.
