That country is the Muslim country of Tunisia. In 2014 – after a populist uprising – the Islamist dictatorship of Tunisia was overturned and a democratic government was instituted. Part of the new Tunisian Constitution reads as follows:
Article 46 Women’s rights
The state commits to protect women’s accrued rights and work to strengthen and develop those rights.
The state guarantees the equality of opportunities between women and men to have access to all levels of responsibility in all domains.
The state works to attain parity between women and men in elected Assemblies.
The state shall take all necessary measures in order to eradicate violence against women.
There are similar articles for children and for people with disabilities.
Those of you who have stereotyped Islamists as rigid Sharia Law advocates and have posited falling sky narratives because of Muslims in our country and European countries need to study the recent social transition struggles in Tunisia.
They are not finished. Social change is still taking place. But with respect to equal rights for women, this Muslim country beat America to the punch.
And not all Muslim countries are the same…
