Egypt’s new majority Islamist parliament is currently debating a law which would give men the right to have intercourse with their deceased wives up to six hours after their death.
Is necrophilia a common desire among Egyptian men? It boggles my mind that this issue would even come up.
More distressingly, however, parliament is also debating lowering the legal marriage age for girls from 16 to 14.
I am so thankful I was born an American woman in this era.
