Claiming Equal Citizenship Campaign
Women’s right to equal citizenship is guaranteed by the majority of Arab constitutions, as well as by international law. Yet across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region and the Gulf, women are denied their right to nationality – a crucial component of citizenship. Such laws send the message that women do not enjoy a direct relationship with the state, but must access their citizenship rights through mediation of a male family member, such as a father or a husband. Until women in the MENA and Gulf regions are recognized as full nationals and citizens, they cannot participate fully in public life, nor claim the other rights to which they are entitled as equal members of their societies. Please lend your support to the campaign. Send a message of solidarity to WLP campaign partners who are coordinating the national and regional campaigns to raise awareness of the issue, advocate for change, and mobilize support to modify discriminatory legislation.
