Today is a big day for women in Lebanon.
we as women are watching carefully the actions that will be done by the parliamentarians in the so long and waited General Assembly.
1- will they vote for the extension of the Maternity leave period from 49 days to 70 days for working mothers in Lebanon? (amendment of articles 28-29 from the Labor Law?)
2- Will they vote for the extension of the maternity leave period from 60 days to 70 days for working mothers employees in the public sector in Lebanon?? (Amendment of article 38 of law 112 of employees in the public sector?)
3- will they vote for the Law protecting women from domestic violence in the form presented by the Women NGOs of Lebanon mainly Kafa?
If not, I , Rita Chemaly as a lebanese citizen won’t vote for them anymore!
isn’t it their job to legiferate?
No laws, No vote!
