There has been an increasing trend towards repealing laws providing this impunity, with Tunisia following suit in July Laws of this type are historically common and still exist around the globe.
Tunisia is a nation that places great cultural importance on the chastity of women. Therefore, the rationale for marry-your-rapist laws, such as Article , is rooted in shielding the victim from the cultural shame of rape.
The Tunisian Government acknowledged that Article was premised on striking a balance between the rights of the woman and those of the family. Marry-your-rapist laws raise debate as to the appropriateness of such laws in the cultural context of a country like Tunisia. Opposition to article has been voiced through broader advocacy campaigns pressuring governmental action to end violence against women in Tunisia.
Tunisian human rights organisations protested the decision on the basis that it violated international human rights treaties as well as Tunisian laws protecting the rights of children. The Tunisian campaigns for repeal were supported by the collective action of regional feminist organisations such as the Tunisian Association of Democratic Women collaborating efforts with activist NGOs like the International Federation of Human Rights. Reform following public outcry for repeal has been seen worldwide, with Tunisia joining countries such as Lebanon, Costa Rica, Uruguay, Peru, Romania and France that have repealed marry-your-rapist laws.
On July 26, , Tunisia's Parliament accepted wide-ranging new legislation aimed at the protection of women against all forms of violence. The Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women has appealed to Tunisian Parliament to amend article since , voicing concern about the impunity provided to perpetrators to allow them to benefit from their own violence. However, commentators on the new reform have still voiced concerns that the legislation does not go far enough to address violence against women.
Issue has been raised for the continuance of the social practice of marrying a victim to her rapist despite the legal abolition of a perpetrator's impunity. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Science Technology. Arts Humanities. Popular culture.

Yet its effectiveness is weakened by the lack of an agreed meaning and relationship to racism and orientalism. Adopting a global perspective, this collection provides four distinct contexts for the problematization of Muslim identity and the deployment of Islamophobia. Shaheen, Jack G. Reel Bad Arabs.

And this happens in every type of film imaginable: one out of four of the movies profiled here have absolutely nothing to do with the Middle East, yet producers toss in weird, shady, unscrupulous Arabs. He calls for speaking out, for more Arab Americans in the film industry, for fresh films, and for a serious effort on the part of our government to tackle this problem. The book focuses on the various genres and modalities of Islamophobia from the works of rogue academics to the commentary by mainstream journalists, to campaigns by political hacks and special interest groups.
Some featured Islamophobes are Bernard Lewis. Their theories and opinions operate on an assumption that Muslims, particularly Arab Muslims, suffer from particular cultural lacuna that prevent their cultures from progress, democracy and human rights. While the assertion originated in the colonial era, Sheehi demonstrates that it was refurbished as a viable explanation for Muslim resistance to economic and cultural globalization during the Clinton era. If the assertions of media pundits and rogue academics became the basis for White House foreign policy, Sheehi also demonstrates how they were translated into a sustained domestic policy of racial profiling and Muslim-baiting by agencies from Homeland Security to the Department of Justice.
Furthermore, Sheehi examines the collusion between non-governmental agencies, activist groups and lobbies and local, state and federal agencies in suppressing political speech on US campuses critical of racial profiling, US foreign policy in the Middle East and Israel.
While much of the direct violence against Muslims on American streets, shops and campuses has subsided, Islamophobia runs throughout the Obama administration. Sheehi, therefore, concludes that Muslim and Arab-hating emanate from all corners of the American political and cultural spectrum, serving poignant ideological functions in the age of economic, cultural and political globalization.
