Knowing Women' s and Children' s Rights in Algeria

27.05.2015 / Created by (EMWF)

This summary comes from a study, based on two surveys, one on adults and another on youths (14 to 17). It seeks to compare their knowledge, attitudes and opinions about the values of equality by differentiating the men' s and women' s perspectives. The study thus examines the views about women' s rights in the private and public sphere in Algeria: the right to work, the right to run for election, the right to divorce, maintenance or removal of polygamy, family prohibitions and the choice of clothes, elimination of gender-based violence, and so on.
