Nisrine Mansour

Abstract


Women’s participation in current debate has been widely used and disseminated through various international developmentand women’s rights forums alike. In the most common and recently used sense, women’s participation means actively involving women in decision-making.1 Transferred to the Lebanese context, the concept has been largely interpreted by state and non-state actors as formal political decision- making and less so as participation in fighting for personal status rights both at the levels of the family or social groups mobilization.
