The clans criticized the Palestinian Authority for committing to CEDAW and called for banning feminist groups operating in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Several Palestinian clans in the West Bank have announced their rejection of The Convention of the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), an international treaty adopted in 1979 by the United Nations General Assembly.
The clans also criticized the Palestinian Authority for committing to CEDAW and called for banning feminist groups operating in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Critics of the treaty claim that it goes against Arab and Islamic norms and teachings. “This treaty is unacceptable to Arabs and Muslims,” remarked Palestinian activist Abu Ghassan Shaheen. “It goes against our religion and traditions.”
On Saturday, leaders of large Palestinian clans in Hebron called on the PA to withdraw from the treaty. They also called for banning feminist groups from entering Palestinian schools.
I wonder if Rashida Talibs sick grandmother was part of these clans.
