Gender Discrimination and Inequality in Jordan

2018

The objective of this study is to explore the prevalence and root causes of gender discrimination and patriarchy in Jordan. It examines the extent to which patriarchy is embedded in national legislation and societal practices and provides evidence-based policy recommendations to improve gender equality in Jordan. The study is based on a thorough review of literature and legislation as well as 15 semi-structured in-depth interviews with key experts. The design and analysis of the research is based on a theoretical framework by Suad Joseph Patriarchy and Development in the Arab World.
