August 26, the anniversary of the 19th amendment granting women the right to vote and adopted into the Constitution. For decades, women have had to learn the silent norm by which they are judged at work, in public, and in politics. It’s not just about being the best candidate for a job or any kind of election.

“These women were vilified for being high-quality professionals trying to do their job," she adds. "As a woman, you’re either presenting as great or horrible. You can’t just be normal.” Janice Fraser

Women must be considerate, accommodating but still honorable. Approachable, and yet intimidating to keep the balance.

These unspoken conditions are corrupted with stereotypes and gender bias that has formed an ongoing inequality from the office, society to politics.

The bottom line isthat corruption covers our lives on a daily basis.

While women have come a long way in the fight for equality since the 19th amendment, there is still much more work that needs to be done.

Beyond question, when it comes to closing the gender gap around the world, there is still a long way to go. Over the past few years have been utterly crucial for women worldwide.

To mark Women’s Equality Day, which immortalizes women in many countries gaining the right to vote, we move on to take a look at someArabcountries that are developing remarkable steps in terms of supporting gender equality. Keep on browsing for how some regional nations are championing women’s rights.

UAE

In 2018, The Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAEannounced a new law also including social media channels. “With the strength and rule of the law, we do not want any exceptions in providing equal opportunities for both sexes. Our constitution ensures equal rights among the sexes and we seek to enforce and guarantee this right through the new law.” The draft law established a handbook to improve gender balance.

MOROCCO

Morocco - the first Middle East Country to abolish the law of allowing abusers to avoid punishment by marrying their victims when it comes to the protection of women against violence.Furthermore, following the footsteps of Saudi Arabia and Tunisia, Morocco has recently promulgated criminalizing sexual harassment.

LEBANON

Lebanon is the most recent Arab state to abolish the law of allowing rapists to escape punishment by marrying their victims. Lawmakers voted for the invalidation of Lebanon’s penal code, which exempts executioners of violence against women from prosecution if they marry their victims. Technically, rape is punishable by up to seven years in prison in Lebanon, however, later on, they provided an alternative solution for criminals to avoid severe punishments.
