The Lebanese Association of Women Researchers - Bahithat

Member since 11.06.2018



Mission and objectives

The Lebanese Association of Women Researchers (LAWR or Bahithat) is an independent non-profit association and a forum for dynamic dialogue and the free exchange of ideas and expertise. As its members engage in the production of quality research, LAWR provides a venue for encouraging women’s self-expression, meeting, and networking. LAWR is interested in safeguarding researchers’ rights and in promoting the advancement of the work of women researchers, especially the young and less experienced. It encourages group work that frequently includes researchers of both genders, from outside the association.
Main goals:
Bring women researchers into contact with one another
Support and promote the research of its members
Provide a forum for intellectual exchange.
Encourage young women researchers in finding their research fields

Main activities related to gender equality and women's rights

LAWR produces a yearly volume “Bahithat”. It holds monthly meetings in each of which a research project is introduced and/or discussed. Work-days around chosen topics are held three or four times each year. Beside these fixed activities, LAWR organizes conferences and work-shops on topics like Children’s Literature, Feminism, Civil Society, and Women and Money.
