Tunisia’s President Beji Caid Essebsi on Monday announced plans to submit a draft bill to parliament equalising inheritance rights between men and women. “I propose to make equal inheritance a law”, he said in a televised speech on Tunisia’s Women’s Day.
The text of the bill will be presented to lawmakers after the end of the parliamentary recess in October, he said.
The proposal to equalise inheritance is among the most hotly debated of a raft of proposed social reforms, guided by a commission the president set up a year ago.The commission suggested inheritance should by default be shared equally among male and female heirs.Similar to many Muslim-majority countries, Tunisian law currently stipulates that male heirs should receive double the assets given to females of the same level of kinship.

you are right Ahile. In most Eastern States, women are forbidden from inheriting properties

Bukola Tunde

nice one. Endy even in Yoruba too

Enyinda Nathaniel Okey

Great to see a Muslim not berating women as belonging to the kitchen

@Okey: I like the "clean up" going on in some of the Islamic countries. Saudi Arabia and Tunisia is setting the pace

Akintoye Adebareh Abdul Akeem

This is absolutely wrong.

Mohammed Alkali Abdullahi

Absolutely wrong. inheritance is directly divided by Allah so how can dirty human being like him negatively thinks what God does was wrong.

Endy Edeson

@Alkali: We are talking about gender equality in inheritance . I think it should be a welcome idea

Mohammed Alkali Abdullahi

Not at all. I'm sorry to say even you can't accept any amendment contrary to your religion.

@Alkali: That is why we are living in a dynamic world. There should be room to adjust from old believes. Thanks
