The Ministry of Social Affairs is pleased to introduce the third issue of the newsletter TANSEEQ for Ending Gender-Based Violence (GBV) in Lebanon. The problem of violence has grown into a main social concern for the Ministry, which decided to list it among its top priorities. In fact, the social acceptance of GBV and the resilience shown towards the perpetrator further violates the dignity of women in an environment already lacking the necessary legislation to protect women and end discrimination and violence against them.
