Acquiring the right to pursue a career in diplomacy

Date of Mouvement: 
January 1, 1994 to December 31, 1994

According to the 1971 regulatory law of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Article 39 forced Lebanese women diplomats to leave their jobs should they marry a foreigner. In 1994, Law no. 376 repealed Article 39 and granted female diplomats the right to pursue their careers irrespective of their marital status or their marriage to foreigners.
