Women as Equal Citizens: Advocating for Change in Muslim-Majority Societies

Women's right to equal citizenship is guaranteed by the majority of constitutions in Arab countries, as well as by international law. In many countries in the region, however, women are denied their right to nationality - a crucial component of citizenship. Women in the region who marry men of other nationalities cannot confer their nationality on their husbands or children. These laws undermine women's status as equal citizens in their home countries, preventing them from participating fully in public life. On September 6th 2006, Women’s Learning Partnership convened a panel discussion and launched an international campaign in support of a seven-country regional campaign for Arab women’s right to nationality in Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, and Morocco.
