Ezzedeen calls for concrete steps to ensure gender equality in decision-making


The head of the parliamentary woman and child committee, MP Enaya Ezzedine, pressed for securing the legislative, cultural and social infrastructure needed to ensure equality in responsibility sharing between men and women. Ezzedine was speaking during her participation in the “Women and Democracy” Berlin conference organized by Konrad Adenauer Foundation in collaboration with the German Ministry for International Cooperation and Development. Achieving this, Ezzedine said, is a key proviso for the development and welfare of societies. Ezzedine deplored the slow pace in the process of women’s engagement in political life, stressing the need to adopt positive policies to this effect, notably the approval of the women representation quota. In Lebanon, as in all the Levant, major challenges persist that impede women empowerment at all levels, Ezzedine concluded. (NNA, September 4, 2019)
