2005 Activism

13/15 campaign

Many NGOs joined the fight against confessional personal status laws, which are seen as a hurdle for the creation of national rules to protect vulnerable persons. As a manifestation of these ongoing efforts, the Network for the Rights of the Family launched campaign 13/15 to reform custody laws in all confessions. Yet, the laws continue to be administered by religious courts, and women are still denied their rights to equality before the law, in addition to all the rights guaranteed under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).
