"A Sudanese woman has been sentenced to death by stoning for adultery in the country's first such case in almost a decade. Police in Sudan’s White Nile state arrested Maryam Alsyed Tiyrab, 20, last month, before her sentencing at the Kosti Criminal Court on June 26. Ms Tiyrab had separated from her husband and moved back to her family’s home, before she was interrogated by a police who allegedly obtained an illegal confession from her. Ms Tiyrab was denied legal representation, and her trial commenced without obtaining a formal complaint from the police, which human rights groups say is irregular" (Para. 1-4).

"Studies have put the rate of first and second cousin marriage in Sudan between 40-49% of all marriages. A systematic acceptance of cousin marriage is likely to have taken place in Sudan as a by-product of Islamisation occurring together with Arabisation. Islamic scripture permits cousin marriage, and Prophet Muhammed himself married his first cousin. Regarding the prospect of future opposition from the religious establishment, there is however reason for cautious optimism. Currently, two of the four Sunni madhhabs (schools of thought) do consider cousin marriage Makruh (disliked). There are also three hadiths (record of the traditions or sayings of the Prophet Muhammad), which favour marriage outside of the family, although...more

"She continues, 'The law sets conditions for women to have absolute obedience for the husband, as long as he pays her immediate dowry, that he be a guardian over her, and prepare a house for her, and if she refuses to obey him after that, the law considers her disobedient and forfeits the alimony he must pay her in the event of separation between them.' She then says, 'However, the more common interpretation here is that obedience is obligatory, especially in small towns and rural areas where litigation is usually conducted in accordance with a system of native administration that often tends to be conciliatory'" (para 6-7).more

"In Egypt, Morocco, Sudan, Tunisia, and Jordan, most females, regardless of their education or socio-economic status are landless. Gender-based inequalities are often rooted in cultural norms that permit and exacerbate patterns of discrimination against females within the family and in economic transactions" (para 1). "In Egypt, one of the world’s longest established agricultural countries, females constitute only about 5 percent of all agricultural landholders. In Morocco, Tunisia, and Jordan, females are only 4.4, 6.4, and 3.4 percent of total landholders, respectively. The proportion of female landowners is even smaller, since land ownership is only one form of landholding" (para 3). "In Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, and other MENA countries, state laws...more
