Lebanon: Give women equal citizenship rights to men under the nationality law

Equality Now has just issued Women’s Action 36.1— Lebanon: Give women equal citizenship rights to men under the nationality law. The Action urges the Lebanese government to recognize the adverse effects that its discriminatory nationality law has on the families of Lebanese women married to foreign men and, accordingly, to revise its nationality law to ensure that all Lebanese citizens, male or female, have the equal right to confer their Lebanese nationality on their spouses and children.

Below is a form letter that you can send simply by writing your name and email address. We believe that individual letters can often have more impact than “form” ones and we encourage you to customize your email messages and letters if you have time. Equally, if you send the letter yourself rather than through Equality Now, it is possible that it could be noticed more easily. We invite you to customize and submit the letters below (that Equality Now will send on your behalf), or to customize, print and mail these sample letters that we have created for your convenience.
