Equality? ‘Real Muslim women in Mali don’t want it – it’s un-Islamic!’

How does one tackle this problem? A law is voted to protect women and the response is:

"We have to stick to the Koran. A man must protect his wife, a wife must obey her husband. It’s a tiny minority of women here that wants this new law – the intellectuals. The poor and illiterate women of this country – the real Muslims – are against it."
