Women’s political participation in Lebanon

Women’s political participation in Lebanon

To offer policymakers and practitioners a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities that exist when women seek political office in Lebanon, UN Women and ESCWA held on 13 December a discussion to launch their new report entitled "Women at the Table: Insights from Lebanese Women in Politics".
 
The report explores the various barriers to political participation Lebanese women face, from the point of view of seven current and former female Lebanese politicians who have reached pioneering and senior positions within the country’s political landscape.
 
The report infuses strategies and recommendations suggested by the interviewees to increase the presence of women in Lebanese politics.
