The OSI has a new delegation in Tunisia, led by Maître Donia Hedda Ellouze, a lawyer committed to the country's economic development, spreading democracy and improving the position of women.
It began with a number of events, including a working seminar at Maison de la Tunisie, at Paris Cité Universitaire, in the presence of the Ambassador and other leading figures, to discuss the theme of
"Women: the fulcrum of socio-economic change in Tunisia".
The young Republic of Tunisia inherited a history of promoting equality and freedom for women, based on its 1956 Personal Status Code.
Women were at the forefront
of the Arab Spring in Tunisia.
They were active in ensuring the success of political transition and economic and social
development in the country.
