WISE Stands In Solidarity With People Of Egypt
The Shura Council of the Women's Islamic Initiative in Spirituality and Equality, WISE, a global advisory board of Muslim woman scholars, specialists, and activists, supports the massive movement for freedom, equality, justice, and democracy in Egypt initiated by the country's youth and joined by people of all ages and walks of life.
The Shura Council deplores and condemns in the strongest terms the violence unleashed against peaceful citizens, who are simply demanding their basic rights, including the right to physical well-being and to lives of justice and dignity. In solidarity with its partners and members on the ground, the WISE Shura Council urges the widest possible support around the world for the just cause of the Egyptian people.
The Women's Islamic Initiative in Spirituality and Equality (WISE) is a program of the American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA), a non-profit organization based in New York.
