🌷On August 13, all ladies of Tunisia celebrate their holiday – Women’s Day.
On this day, people celebrate the independence of women and recognise their contribution to the development of the nation.
On August 13, 1956, the country leaders adopted the Code of Personal Status (CPS), recognising women as subjects of law.
According to this document, women could have the same rights as men; it also abolished polygamy, created a judicial procedure for divorce, and made marriage possible only by mutual agreement of both parties.
In 1993, the Code was amended several times to give women the right to represent their children in court and the right to pass on their nationality and inheritance to their children to the same extent as their husbands could.
This is an official holiday in Tunisia.
