As of 2009 there had only been seventeen women to serve on parliament since suffrage.
That number is rather dismal but paints the perfect picture of what the outlook of women in parliament is.
NGOs or non-governmental organizations have been created in response to the lack of women's political representation.
The superior status of men in society and within the narrow confines of the nuclear family transcends the barriers of sect or ethnicity. The centrality of the father figure stems from the role of the family as an economic unit.
Although women in Lebanon have their own organizations, most exist as subordinate branches of the political parties.

Lebanese women enjoy almost equal civil rights as men.
However, due to the large number of officially recognized religions in Lebanon, Lebanese family matters are governed by at least 15 personal statute codes.
