Women and Education in Lebanon
Women access to education has not been an issue in Lebanon. Literature on the subject indicates that as far back as the end of the nineteenth century, girls have been given the same educational opportunities as boys. According to Toufic Touma, there were 142 schools in the Mutassaritya of Mount Lebanon and the coastal cities - run essentially by missionaries and Lebanese monks - half of which were girls' schools.
