On the occasion of International Women's Day (IWD), the Nationality Campaign and the members of its leading committee and 275 of the campaign constituency took part in the street march, organised by Kafa on Saturday March 8, starting at the National Museum and going all the way to Badaro, Tayyouneh and the Ministry of justice. The event per se marked the participation of some 4000 individuals.
Members of the Nationality Campaign came with the families from Mount Lebanon, the Beqaa and Beirut suburbs and united in solidarity of all the efforts extended to support the law to protect women from domestic violence. It is hoped that the endorsement of the proposed law will be a first step towards addressing legal violence against women who are denied their right to transmit nationality.
