FREEDOM FOR WOMEN

New Sudanese Bishop on marriage reform

MGR. IRENE() DUD, the first Sudanese Bishop, who was consecrated on Sunday, writes on " Marriage Customs " in the latest issue of the "Catholic Citizen," the magazine of St. .Joan's Social andPolitical Alliance.

..lit the new Sudan Constitution," writes Bishop Dud, " the freedom of all is upheld, that is to say, all should have equal rights, i.e., in society, in education, etc.

" The freedom of women which was not considered in the past is now to be considered.

" Some measure should be taken to work for the abolition of the old customs still practised by some tribes.

"Sometimes you hear of a girl forced to marry an old rich man who has many head of cattle. Some good families, however, do not force their daughters against their will.

,, If the law of the Sudan succeeds in abolishing such customs in such a way as to be understood by the people, then, I think. peace in some way will be restored in many families, for polygamy will gradually be diminished."
