so many Lubnas in Sudan ..!

now again in Sudan,ladies chased and lashed,cause of wearing trauosers,no matter how do you look ,although there is no any such article in islam that allowing lashing women for their dress,it is a matter of behavioral system and values towards descent dressing for both males and females,but all what islamic movements around the world agreed apone is female dressing with little minor differences..!

Trousers

Dear Nahid,

Do you know what happened to the woman after she was thrown in the truck and taken away? It is unjust for women to be treated this way - especially for something as innocent as wearing trousers.

I became aware of this situation when Halima reported the story of Lubna. And later, Lubna joined PulseWire and shared more about her story, about the issues in Sudan and the gender inequalities she and women across Sudan face.

We welcome your voice in our community and I hope that you will continue to use your journal as an instrument for change - to bring awareness to the issues in your country and demanding change.

In friendship and solidarity,
Jade

it is happening again..!

Dear Jade,
i will look out to see what happened to the lady ,they sent to me the vedio just before i taged it here,but ikno the senarios either,lashes, fine,prison,after sever humilation indeed..!
the bad thing about this the douple standard that confining honour just for female,went out side ,when Lubna court was going on,and detained for 6 hours we were 50,ladies at that time,iwrote a poem telling our experience in our common language,may be one day ,i will be able to transilate it fluently into english..now we are fighting against the article 152 that allowed such detaining for wearing trousers, lubna went to constitutional court..and we are looking for change..unfortunately we are the easy targets whenever the government want to hide her failurers ..and shifting the attention of our people away from the failures..!
stay well
