The following section provides a general overview of the EU’s principal political institutions for this purpose. 20 ● Sexual Equality The EU is neither a confederation of states nor a federal state but a supranational and international actor that is entirely novel and historically unique.

Writing from France, Kramer holds that for many boys, “transforming a bluejeaned teen-age sister into a docile and observant ‘Muslim’ virgin was a rite de passage into authority, the fast track to becoming a man, and more important, a Muslim man” (2004, 66; see also Amara and Zappi 2006). 10 ● Sexual Equality Individuals who struggle on behalf of women to bring such matters to the public’s attention often do so at risk to their own lives in the hope that their reasoned, nonviolent protest will matter.
