The Anti-Suffrage Campaign

The Kuwait Times holds the argument against women’s rights. Here is what they have to say:

Kuwait’s hardline Islamists, citing foreign interference, have embarked on a counter-offensive in the face of a determined government-led drive to grant disenfranchised women their suffrage. The anti-women rights campaign kicked off late Tuesday with a public rally hosted by tribal-Islamist lawmaker Daifallah Buramya under the slogan that “based on Islamic sharia law, women have no political rights”. Buramya vowed to oppose a government-sponsored draft law that would grant women the right to vote and run for public office, citing fatwas, or religious edicts, that prohibit participation of Muslim women in politics. “Ninety per cent of Kuwaiti women reject political rights because they know it is against religion.”

Of course, if a woman may for some odd reason disagree with this she could get a good ol’ discipline session from her beloved husband (for her own good of course).
