I have an open offer to all activists joining the march on Jan 14 to protest the marital rape laws in Lebanon: If you would like me to help you design poster signs, I’ll be more than happy to do so! It’s a bit late notice but it just occurred to me today. I have gone ahead and designed 3. I am attaching the pdf files below for the high res quality. You can use them to print signs or even t-shirts. Wish I could join you in person!
This is an extract to explain the situation:
”Article 503 says a rapist can be acquitted if he marries the victim. He would often get a reduced sentence if he proposes marriage. The maximum sentence is 5 years. Husbands are excluded from this law if they rape their wives. Rape is interpreted as a penis penetrating a vagina. All other forms of sexual violence are not criminalized. This is the law the governs rape in Lebanon. This is the law we should revolt against.” – Nadine Moawad | Nasawiya
