Musawah (Equality in Arabic, website at http://www.musawah.org), a global movement for equality and justice in the Muslim family, was launched at a Global Meeting in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from 13-17 February 2009. Musawah calls for equality, non-discrimination, justice and dignity as the basis of all human relations; full and equal citizenship for every individual; and marriage and family relations based on principles of equality and justice, with men and women sharing equal rights and responsibilities.
This was the opening video for the Global Meeting. It documents why equality in the family is necessary and possible, based on the principles of equality in Islam and the decades of activism and reform that have happened in Muslim countries and contexts around the world.
