Women's Issues: Chauvinist Koran

Recently I reported that Islamic feminist activists meeting in Barcelona, had called for a "gender jihad".

The conference is now over, and the final statement of the conference denounced "male chauvinist" interpretations of the Koran, and called for a more open interpretation to take into account the context of 21st century societies.

Those aims should be achieved round about the time pigs start flying and Hell freezes over, (Halliburton will get the reconstruction contract).
