Women, a bulwark against extremism and fundamentalism: the example of Tunisia




The object of this report is to put women at the heart of the task of modernizing the Muslim world and the struggle against fundamentalism, and to demonstrate, starting with the case of schools, that Tunisia, a Muslim country (and defined as such by its Constitution),  is a place where the rights of women are most extensive and best established. In this way we demonstrate that there is not only no contradiction between belonging to a Muslim culture and promoting the rights of women, moreover that these rights are one of the most effective ramparts against extremism.
