Oman’s Basic Law prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender at article 17.[1] Sharia law is recognised as the source of all legislation, and all civil courts have a Sharia department, which deals with matters relating to the personal status law.[2] Oman ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in 2006, but has not yet ratified the Optional Protocol.[3] The country lodged a general reservation to all provisions in CEDAW not in accordance with Sharia law, and specifically made reservations against Article 9, paragraph 2 (granting women rights equal to men in respect to deciding their children’s nationality), Article 15, paragraph 4 (granting women equal freedom of movement and choice of domicile as men), Article 16, paragraph 1 (granting women equal rights regarding marriage and family life), and Article 29 (regarding arbitration of conflicts arising from the convention).[4]
