Cherie Blair says religion “is no excuse for inequality”
AS HER husband works to bring about peace between Israeli Jews and Palestinian Muslims, Cherie Blair put both religions in the dock over their unequal treatment of women.
With characteristic aplomb, she attacked the continuing inequality of women’s role in world religion and said differences of culture or religion could not be used as a justification for denying equal rights.
She denounced the treatment of women on religious grounds as a “distortion” of the true message of faiths such as Islam.
