If you want to see systemic sexism, you must move to Lebanon!

BOTH Iran and Saudi Arabia are now ahead of Lebanon, when it comes to the equality between men and women. Can you imagine the irony and the insult to the Lebanese women and the injustice to their children, especially in a supposedly secular and much more open-minded country!?

Indeed, Saudi Arabia has a citizenship law and Iran has just improved its more recent law, allowing Iranian mothers to give the citizenship to their offspring:



Good for both Saudi Arabia and Iran for these reforms. Bravo for this step forward.

Sadly, in Lebanon, up until today, only fathers married to non-Lebanese citizens can give their citizenship to their children. Not mothers! How logical and fair is that?

Shame on you Lebanon… When will be your turn?!
