Abstract


“The legal pluralism in family law has led to an absence of an 'equality before the law' standard in Lebanon. Women and children of different religious sects face very different legal choices and possibilities in terms of marriage, divorce, child custody, and inheritance… Women and children have been disproportionally disadvantaged by the delegation of family law to religious sects. Women are more likely than men to forfeit their religious heritages when they marry out.
