Algeria: 20 Years is Enough
|Family code in Algeria - comment piece.pdf||33.51 KB|
In 2003, the '20 ans Barakat' campaign was initiated by the association of the same name. The aim of the Campaign was to inform and raise awareness among the people in general and women in particular about the Algerian Family Code (personal status laws).
The Algerian Government examined and adopted amendments of the Family Code after more than twenty years of multiple struggles by women for equality laws. The proposed amendments are far from ending all the discriminations of which women are victims. Some associations have, nevertheless, noticed significant progress in the spheres of the contracting of marriages and divorces, the guardianship system and the modification of the code of nationality.
