Understanding the Role of Women and the Feminist Actors in Lebanon’s 2019 Protests

Authors/editor(s): UN Women

Women have been at the core of Lebanon’s popular protests since they began on October 17, 2019. Assessing the first 58 days of protests, this paper seeks to contribute to the documentation of women’s representation, roles, and demands within Lebanon’s protests, while also examining the use of gendered language and norms by all sides of the country’s complex landscape. It situates this action within the broader women, peace and security framework, which recognizes women as political actors and peace and security leaders and brokers.
