Changes to be made to legislation in Monaco

On Thursday evening in the legislative session, the elected representatives examined a bill aimed at amending and repealing obsolete and unequal provisions in Monegasque law with regard to women's rights.

Although it is more a matter of form than substance, it is indeed a further step towards equality between men and women in Monaco which was taken on Thursday evening during the legislative session.

The elected members of the National Council adopted a government bill, drawn up within the framework of the Committee for the Promotion and Protection of Women's Rights, the aim of which is to amend and repeal obsolete or inegalitarian provisions concerning women, which have been identified in all the codes and non-codified provisions of Monegasque law. A semantic update, in more than 50 articles, which is much more than a symbol.

"This updating of the legal provisions contributes to continuing the construction of the edifice of women's rights and to bringing the Principality into line with the evolution of society and, on an international level, in accordance with the recommendations of the United Nations," recalled the Minister of State Pierre Dartout.
