Speaking at the inauguration of the the first women conference, Muslim Brotherhood Chairman Dr. Mohamed Badei commended women’s role during the January 25th revolution.

Highlighting that the MB’s vision was always based on complete equality of rights between men and women while preserving their different social roles, Badie stressed the need to empower women so they can acquire more responsibilities  in the public sphere that do not conflict with society’s basic values especially after the revolution.

He stated that women including MB women activists were at the forefront of the social and political struggle in Egypt, and called on women to continue seeking the establishment of a democratic political system in the country.

Badie addressed the women attending to continue advocating the call for this  civil state highlighting that Islam brought justice to women. He  stressed that any lack of equal rights has to do more with the cultural, political and social realities.

He reiterated calls for greater women’s participation following the revolution to accommodate a dynamic constituency and changing political and social factors, adding that integrating women on the political scene will help alter the perception that Egypt is as undemocratic as the regime which formerly ruled it.

The chairman called for the recognition of the central role played by women during the revolution and encouraged them to continue as mothers, sisters, daughters and wives of those who lost their lives during the revolution, and praising the sacrifices of young women killed during the revolution.

Badie ended the conference stating that following the revolution women should continue working side by side with men to ultimately generate a positive force affecting the social and political culture in Egypt.

A delegation from the MB’s executive office and MB leaders including VP Eng. Khairat al Shater, Dr. Gomaa Amin, Dr. Mahmoud Ezzat, Dr. Mahmoud Ghazlan and Dr. Mohyee Hamed also attended the women's conference.
