As the world is marking the International Women's Day, this celebration has enclosed a significant importance this year in Lebanon where more than 100 women have submitted their candidacy for the parliamentary elections. The Kataeb party also has its share of this record-breaking number, with many female candidates bracing themselves to take part in the parliamentary race.
International Women's Day
Wednesday is International Women’s Day, and the organizers of the Women’s March are holding another protest. This one is called A Day Without a Woman, in solidarity with those women who have lower wages and experience greater inequalities. The protest encourages women to take the day off work, avoid shopping other than in small women- and minority-owned stores, and wear red.
