Sudan repeals law that restricted women’s dress and behaviour

The Sudanese government has repealed a law used to regulate women’s dress and behavior following mass protests and a change of government. The Public Order Act (POA) was used to impose conservative Islamic social codes, restricting women’s movement, work and study. PM Abdallah Hamdok tweeted that it was ’notorious for being used as a tool of exploitation, humiliation and violation of rights’.

But will anything be done about terrorists who still force the women to follow these rules even though the laws have changed?

So progressive and tolerant these middle eastern countries! Way better than western patriarchy. But in all seriousness a small step in the right direction is good news non the less...

It looks like political Islam is currently collapsing worldwide. We see reforms in Saudi Arabia, the Arab Spring failed and the fall of the IS and al-Qaeda. The age of the global Jihad is coming to an end.

Wow. Story has been up for 8 hours, and no one has said "islam is right about women" yet? I'm genuinely shocked.
