The Women and Children Parliamentary Commission meets to discuss discrimination (and it is about time…!)


The Women and Children Parliamentary Commission held a session during which it reviewed local laws that are discriminatory against women and compared these with the provisions of international convention with emphasis on the arguments accompanying each.  The Commission also reviewed a compendium of discriminatory Lebanese law and decided to start developing law proposals to address discrimination in the letter of the law and submit these for approval by the Assembly so that the latter can review and adopt these suggested reforms.
