In response to the cabinet’s passing of the law to restore the nationality to Lebanese descendants:Lebanon is the land of men alone!

Wed, 12/14/2011

In its Monday December 12, 2011 hearing, the Lebanese council of ministers passed the draft law “to restore the nationality to Lebanese descendants” but only after making an amendment dubbed “minor” by the Minister of Interior, Marwan Charbel. The amendment consisted of granting the nationality according to the blood connection with the father and not the mother. This unfortunately reflects the fact that Lebanese women’s issues and rights are still approached with a patriarchal mentality and that women are being alienated and deprived from their rights.

On the decree to withdraw the nationality: people’s rights are not up for political bargains

Fri, 11/04/2011

On 20-06-1994, they were granted the Lebanese nationality for political-electoral purposes. On 28-10-2011, the nationality was withdrawn from them because the Lebanese state had given them that nationality by mistake!!! Thus, a number of Lebanese citizens are now under the mercy of the haphazard decrees and decisions issued by the Lebanese state every now and then in light of the absence of a clear and transparent legal framework. These decisions are producing deep negative effects in these people’s social, economic, and even political lives.

1.5% of the ministerial statement dedicated to women!

Fri, 07/01/2011

It seems that the cabinet of PM Najib Mikati is proceeding with its alienation of Lebanese women and their rights to a full partnership and to equality. Indeed, and after dropping women from the cabinet, there goes the ministerial statement placing them at the bottom of the priorities that the upcoming cabinet is planning on tackling.

The ministers of the nation graced us with a few, unclear words through their ministerial statement. They were kind enough to make promises to women on the work to enhance women’s rights in public life, mainly in leading positions.
