Marital rape is not considered a crime in Lebanon. Politician Imad Hout recently stated, "There's nothing called rape between a husband and wife."
Next Saturday, January 14th, at 12pm in Beirut, a women's organization called Nasawiya is holding a protest against this law. It takes place outside of the Ministry of Interior in the neighbourhood of Sanayeh. If you can, please show your support. If you're not in Beirut, please spread the word on Twitter (tag @nasawiya,) on your blog, or on Facebook.
