Women’s Nationality Campaign- Lebanon from Stephanie Issa on Vimeo.


A string of national demonstrations, including a protest outside Parliament, are now expected, alongside a petition calling for equal treatment of women, the National Gathering for Removing Discrimination against Women said.

Although the group, representing some 60 Lebanese NGOs, has yet to make final arrangements, it has also made plans to meet with President Michel Sleiman and Prime Minister Saad Hariri, as well as host of other leading politicians. [DailyStar]

Although i am a strong supporter of equality in rights between men and women, i believe this whole nationality issue should be discussed more seriously as to its consequences and be restricted to non-Palestinians for demographic reasons.
