The Attitude of Lebanese Society towards Child Marriage - An Opinion Poll
Authors/editor(s): UN Women
In Lebanon, the Lebanese Women Democratic Gathering conducted an opinion poll on child marriage and are using the results as a basis to sensitize the public as well as political parties on this issue. Meetings are conducted with parliamentarians and political parties to introduce RDFL’s proposed law and lobby for its discussion in parliament and thereafter adoption and ratification. The project promotes the engagement of men and boys from political parties, media outlets, as decision makers, and as fathers and community leaders through awareness raising on gender and cultural norms, encouraging them to say no to child marriage and to promote gender-equitable behaviours.
