The National Commission for Lebanese Women submitted a proposal Tuesday to amend Lebanon's nationality law to give Lebanese women married to foreign men the right to pass their nationality to their children, with some limitations. The proposal, prepared at the request of Prime Minister Saad Hariri, is the latest in a series of legislative proposals to address the inequalities in Lebanon's nationality law, which gives men, but not women, the right to pass their nationality to their children.The NCLW's proposal does not make any exceptions for specific nationalities, but does propose a two-tiered system based on the age of the children.The proposal would apply only to children, not to husbands, of Lebanese women.
