Freedom and Justice Party Statement on the International Women’s Day
On the occasion of the International Women’s Day, Egypt’s Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) re-affirms its commitment to working towards advancing women’s rights in Egypt and in the region. Undeniably, Egyptian women were at the forefront of the Egyptian revolution that overthrew the pervious corrupt regime. For decades, the Mubarak regime marginalized many segments of Egyptian society, including women, who evidently suffered high levels of illiteracy and poverty. By contrast, equality, fairness and social justice are some of the core values on which the FJP was founded. It, therefore, is no coincidence that the FJP seeks to empower all segments of society, including women, so they may fully regain their rights and freedoms.
