Muslim family law discriminates against women in matters related to marriage, divorce, child custody, and inheritance. Leaders of Islamic groups attending the annual Conservative Party convention in Brighton called on the Thatcher Government to ban the book; and it was reported that Britain's Attorney General had been asked to begin criminal proceedings against Rushdie under the archaic blasphemy laws.

    Lawrence is described as a misogynist. They are here, with us, and we love them so much. This happened Embattled selves book long time ago, the ecstatic young soldier would be in his sixties now, Lawrence has been dead for over 70 years, and Lady Chatterley's Lover is still at large in the world, still potent and persuasive, and in the hands of young women in countries where they know they may be killed for love. They are reminded of their deaths with every rattling breath, every cough. In these days he would not have to write so obscurely.
