Fourth PCDD seminar on women and public affairs in Tripoli


The Partnership Center for Development & Democracy (PCDD) organised last week its fourth seminar on women’s participation in public life this time held in Tripoli in collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture.  The event is part of a series of seminars that the centre is organizing in various areas of Lebanon within the framework of the “eye on my municipality” project implemented with financial support from MEPI.
The seminar was moderated by the Centre’s director Lina Alameddine, and discussed challenges facing women in political participation.  It highlighted issues such as male authority, traditional mindsets, the electoral system and women’s personality.  Some participants blamed women for being weak in taking initiatives and proving themselves in public life whilst other participants objected to the quota system; however, there was a consensus that women should have the right to transmit their nationality to their children.
