LAWS AND PRACTICES:

Lebanon adheres to the United Nations Charter that states that all men are free and equal and have equal rights with no discrimination between men and women. Despite its adherence to the Charter of the United Nations and the signing of international treaties, there is still much discrimination against women both in the law and in practice.

"The civic status of women in Lebanon is the very basis of for the discrimination against them."

Needed social and political reforms in everyday life

Establish full equality between women and men

Implement the edicts of the International Convention on the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women

Remove the reservations placed on this Convention by Lebanon

Grant full citizenship to foreign women who marry Lebanese men

Grant the right to a Lebanese wife to give the Lebanese nationality to her children and her foreign husband

Establish non-sectarian secular laws to protect women's rights

Enable women to gain access to all executive political positions

Remove quotas limiting women’s participations in elections

Provide equal social benefits to women

Improve women’s rights in Industry

Ensure equal pay and promotion

Ensure adequate maternity leave

Ensure employment upon return from maternity leave

Ensure equal rights and equal responsibilities during marriage

Ensure equal rights upon the dissolution of marriage with regard to guardianship, trusteeship, adoption and custody of children

It is time to act ... to modernize ... to change...

“At every level, the progress of a nation is measured by the degree of women’s freedom”
