 MONITORING BODY FOR WOMEN’S ANIT-DISCRIMINATION CONVENTIONS TAKES UP REPORTS OF EGYPT
In 1981 Egypt ratified the Convention, although with several reservations, including a reservation on article 2, concerning general legal and legislative protections.  The reservation states a willingness to comply with the article “provided that such compliance does not run counter to Islamic sharia.”
Zulficar informed experts on the status of legal reform in the country.  She said areas such as family law were very sensitive and, while some changes had been introduced to the national substantive law, the procedural arm was resisting any changes.  The procedural rules were based on the sharia regulations.
That did not mean that there were no problems in Egypt, she continued.  One of the main problems was the nationality law.  Also, women’s representation in the national parliament was very low, and there was a problem with violence in the family.
