This document, entitled "Remembering" was created by Women Living Under Muslim laws and delivered as a powerpoint presentation during the 59th session of the Commission on the Status of Women (20 years after the Beijing Declaration and Platform of Action).

Despite significant breakthroughs in the past 20 years, violence against women and girls justified in the name of religion, customs, traditions – in short, culture - remains unabated. Women continue to be persecuted and killed for making choices in life that are perceived to defy social norms.  The presentation was created as a tribute to these women, to honour them and their sacrifices.
