An emerging trend is being witnessed in the Middle East. In Lebanon, all women with the Lebanese citizenship are provided full rights such as: voting, joining the workforce, and starting their own business. When it comes to settling down and choosing a future partner for marriage, he has to be Lebanese.

Why should a Lebanese woman, residing in Lebanon, be that demanding?

 

It is not about being demanding. Women are the majority here: According to CIA fact book, females outnumber males by 79,830.

When majority rules, why is the Lebanese government still discriminating against women?

Provided the woman marries a foreign man, the Lebanese citizenship is out of the question for him and the children. Lebanese men who are married to foreign women can provide the nationality to her and her children.   The only instance the woman can provide the Lebanese citizenship for her children is when the father is unknown.  

 

Did you know that women's participation in the workforce is 59% in the UAE according to Reena Amos Dyes?   It is hardly 23% for females in Lebanon according to Central Administration of Statistics (CAS). It is 36% less women working in Lebanon than in the UAE.

This discrimination not only forces a trend towards immigration but will lose a lot of potential business and valuable talent.
