PCHR’s Women’s Rights Unit Organizes a Lecture on Family Law in the al-Daraj Neighborhood of Gaza

In the context of the legal awareness program conducted by PCHR’s Women’s Rights Unit, the unit organized a lecture on marriage in Family Law at the offices of al-Ghad (Tomorrow) Development Association in the al-Daraj neighborhood of Gaza City.  At least 40 women living in the area attended the lecture.

At the beginning of the lecture, unit lawyer Ghada al-Nazli welcomed the attendants and briefed them on activities conducted by the unit, especially the free legal assistance service provided to women and the legal awareness programs, which seeks to raise the awareness of women of their rights ensured by domestic and international laws. 

Unit lawyer Hanan Matar talked about the Family Law applicable in the Gaza Strip, emphasizing its importance and relevance to women’s lives.  She then explained marriage contracts, their conditions, their elements and their effects with regard to dowries, residences and alimonies. 

The floor was then opened for discussion.  The participants asked a number of questions concerning Family Law and lawyer Matar answered these questions, while also providing assistance with legal consultations. 

At the end of the lecture, the participants called for organizing more legal awareness lectures, as they contribute to raising the awareness of women of their rights ensured by applicable domestic laws.
