Women’s Learning Partnership to launch an International campaign to mobilize Arab women’s right to nationality

Women in the Middle East are trying hard to be recognized since a long time now. Despite the conservative practices imposed by the radical groups, women are gearing up to take all the rigid challenges on their stride and they are applying various measures to safeguard their interest. Women in the Arab world had attained success to certain extent; nevertheless, there is a long journey ahead of them. To reform the aged-old policies and legislation that blocks the progress of women, several women rights organization are using some ‘basic techniques and well-though out strategies’ to break the shackles. Women in these countries do not have the rights to equal citizenship. Supposedly, if a Saudi woman is married to a non-Muslim man, their children will not be considered as a Saudi citizen. To ensure the citizenship rights of women in the Middle East nations, Women’s Learning Partnership is all set to launch a ‘seven country regional movement’ which is scheduled to kick start on the September 6. The sole aim of this campaign will be to work for the attainment of ‘Arab women’s right to nationality in Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, and Syria’.
