Lebanon’s Feminist Civil Society Platform calls for ensuring a fair and equitable space for women in the political sphere

The members of Lebanon’s Feminist Civil Society Platform met on 22 September to express their concern about the drastic regression of women’s representation in the recently formed government in Lebanon. Women’s rights and opportunities to equal participation in decision-making should be institutionalized; therefore, the signatories to this statement issued a list of demands that must be met in order to truly encompass a fair and equitable space for women in the political sphere. The statement highlights the upcoming parliamentary and municipal elections and reiterates the demands made by the Platform since August 4, 2020.
