Article 8 of the Lebanese Constitution asserts the equality of rights and duties of all citizens, regardless of gender.[1] Lebanon ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in 1997 with reservations to Article 9(2), regarding nationality; several subparagraphs of Article 16(1), related to personal status laws; and Article 29(1), on the settlement of disputes.[2] Lebanon has published CEDAW in the official Gazette, giving it primacy over national laws, one of the few Arab countries to do so. The country has not yet ratified the Optional Protocol.[3]
