The policy on gender equality in Tunisia

08.10.2015 / Created by (EMWF)

The document provides an overview of the legislation in Tunisia on women's rights, one of the most modern in the Arab world, notably because it includes the right to abortion and access to contraceptives. It examines women's rights in the recent historical context of the revolution and the first free elections after the fall of President Ben Ali. It addresses, among other issues, decision-making and political participation during the "Arab Spring", education and participation in the labour market, and violence against women.
