Civil society organizations called for a protest sit-in in front of the House of Representatives on Monday morning, in opposition to the constitutional amendments related to the family and women.

The director of the Women and Child Training and Empowerment Forum, Omaima al-Akhras, confirmed to Al-Bawsala that the vigil coincided with the parliament’s vote on the proposed constitutional amendments.

Akhras explained that the forum’s participation in the stand was part of the participation of civil organizations and associations concerned with family affairs.

She pointed out that the proposed constitutional amendments related to the family, women and men came out of the cloak of CEDAW, in which civil society rejects many of its articles related to absolute equality.

It is noteworthy that the House of Representatives is expected to vote on the constitutional amendments within the next few days.
