Tunisia has a very progressive women rights legislation, comparing to other Middle Eastern countries. In 1956, it implemented the Code of Personal Status—a series of laws that regulate relations and institutions of equality between men and women in a number of areas. Women in Tunisia have the right to vote, seek office, and travel with their children without the permission of the father.
The day when women got their rights is widely celebrated with different rallies. The celebrations are held across the entire country, including the capital–Tunis. You will see many women in national costumes and colours of the Tunisian flag. You can observe national dances and songs. See for yourself how colourful the street of Tunisia become on this day.
National Women's Day is an annual celebration, held every August 13th.
