This picture of Georges Clooney is going viral but even for a fun campaign some basic requirements/ conditions are not met: Clooney is the husband of a lebanese woman but because of the nationality law dating of 1925 can’t be lebanese as Amal alameddine can’t transmit her nationality to her hsuband as per lebanese law!!!

Aha again shedding lights on the biggest discrimination facing lebanese woman.

So georges help fight to amend this patriarchal law for lebanese women to be able to transmit their basic rights for their husbands and children!!!

ABAAD-Resource Center for Gender Equality produced this wonderful short movie in which Syrian refugee  that are women, men and a little girl tell us about their hope of building a future of Peace!

I was moved by this short movie, and especially by the positive messages sent from all those brave women and this little girl who raised at the end a beautiful wish of seeing her grandma in a safer place! 

Refugees in Lebanon numerous, their life is super difficult eventhough many where hosted by their family members of extended family. This short movie highlights their hopes! 

Kuddos to Abaad Team!

#IWD2016, everywhere people are taking the #PledgeForParity , I can’t do it….

daily what I , as a young woman in Lebanon is Living is hell:

usually the top priorities are for me to Campaign for Women of my country to BE ABLE TO TRANSMIT THEIR NATIONALITY to their husbands and CHILDREN.

Usually the top priority is for me to scream :WE AS WOMEN need to have full equality in Marriage, divorce, adoption, INHERITANCE (which we don’t or because of our Rotten Personal status laws, or because of Practices aiming to prefer a boy to a girl , a brother on his sister, a man over with wife.)!

Usually my top priority for #IWD is for me to campaign for what typical women’s right movement in Lebanon has usually campaigned for ” Women in Politics”, “Women in leading positions”

What I am Campaigning for today , ON #IWD2016 and after almost a year living in the GARBAGE is for a CLEAN ENVIRONMENT IN LEBANON. #Planet5050 but for #Lebanon!

Do you know that we (women, men, children, elder) live in a river of garbage?

Pollution has eaten our WATER, pollution has eaten parts of our LUNGS, pollution made by US, HUMAN BEINGS IN LEBANON has turned what used to be ” the green Lebanon” to a GARBAGE BIN.

Today I will be busy campaigning for Women to have a leading role in Municipalities , as you may all know by now, it seems that the elections for the municipal councils in Lebanon are on May 2016.

The TOP priority of all Counciles should be an ENVIRONMENTAL SOLUTION to the garbage CRISIS.

it is not possible for children to all be sick for more than months, it is not possible for elder people in Lebanon to all have oxygen all the time now!

we need SOLUTIONS that are ENVIRONMENTAL FOR GARBAGE that is polluting our AIR, ATMOSPHERE, WATER, and Health!!!!! Solutions made by ALL SEGMENTS OF A SOCIETY WOMEN AND MEN.

Again, as stated in november 2015 , I repeat the Same Scream from LEBANON:

SOS big SOS an environmental / HEALTHY PUBLIC Policy is NEEDED NOW!!! Garbage is polluting air, water, underground water, streets….!!! Reducing Reusing and Recycling is a step, what is else needed?!!! Women with a clear Environmental vision and a Will to implement ENVIRONMENTAL SOLUTIONS?!?!!

LET’S DO IT!!!!

HAPPY  INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY #IWD #IWD2016 #IWDLEBANON

IWD2016 GARBAGE CRISIS ENVIRONMENT LEBANON CHEMALY RITA
