On March 8th, just after 1 pm, Sudanese women gathered in front of the Justice Ministry in downtown Khartoum to call for the reform of the Muslim Personal Status Act of 1991 also known as the family law. In solidarity, dozens of Sudanese women had also organized protests in different cities around the world to protest the long-standing discriminatory legislation and show support. Protest because Sudan’s personal status laws guide many critical aspects of life such as marriage, divorce, custody and inheritance.
