Promoting Women's Rights & Gender Equality

Women are entitled to the same civil and political rights as men. Moreover, sustainable political and socioeconomic development cannot take place without the participation of women. FES Amman assists civil society organizations in Jordan and Iraq in developing and implementing strategies to strengthen women’s rights and increase female participation in politics and the workforce.

The Focus of Our Work

  • Providing information to the public on political and social developments and democratic reform
  • Increasing political participation and involvement of youth promoting social justice and gender equality

The Flexible Work Regulation (FWR) Report

The Flexible Work Regulation (FWR) has received positive feedback from various industry circles, it was hailed as a welcome step in the direction of catering to and ultimately accommodating a workforce shouldering differing familial circumstances for female workers in particular; in general, the possibility of reducing traffic and avoiding the stress of commuting during rush hours. However, this report came to discuss some other issues with respect to measuring the effectiveness of the current Flexible Work Regulation that was issued on March 16th, 2017 by a comprehensive assessment carried out by lawyers, representatives of civil society organizations, employers, the Ministry of Labor, and other concerned stakeholders.
