Invitation for a roundtable on the Women’s status in the New Constitution

The Egyptian Center for Women's Rights invitations

The Egyptian Center for Women’s Rights ECWR would like to invite you to attend a round-table discussion on “Women’s status in the New Constitution”. During this round-table, the discussion will include the problem of depending on the citizenship article instead of having a special article to guarantee equality between women and men especially after the cancelation of article 68 and the dangerous consequences of this cancelation. In addition, women’s rights in the light of the rights and freedom articles will be discussed along with the going on arguments amongst the founding committee of the constitution members. Finally, the Egyptian women’s fears of getting their rights in the new draft of the constitution will be handled.

Mrs. Nehad Abolkomsan, the chairwoman of the Egyptian Center for Women’s Rights ECWR, will moderate the discussion that will take place on Sunday 2nd of December 2012 from 10 AM to 1:00 PM at Pyramisa Hotel – Louvre Hall, Dokki

We are sure that your attendance will enrich the discussion

Please confirm attendance by calling Mrs. Amal Sakr on ECWR’s office phone
