Monitoring Gender Pay Equality and Protecting Women in Labor Law

Granting Presidential Amnesty
President el-Sisi has granted presidential amnesty to all male and female debtors who are serving their sentences in correctional centers before Ramadan. The number of amnesty recipients is 85, with 40 women and 45 men. This move is aimed at providing relief to families who are struggling with debt.
Personal Status Law
President el-Sisi emphasized that the Personal Status Law should be objective and balanced. The state seeks to address the social problems facing Egyptian families. This move is aimed at promoting social stability and ensuring that families are protected from conflict.
President el-Sisi also announced that the state will provide support for families who have lost their breadwinner through the Family Fund. This move is aimed at protecting families from poverty and ensuring that they have access to the resources they need to survive.
President el-Sisi’s decisions for women in Egypt demonstrate a strong commitment to promoting gender equality and empowering women in various fields. These decisions will provide women with increased representation in leadership positions, expanded training opportunities, and support for savings, lending, and developmental programs.
The president’s emphasis on a balanced and objective personal status law and the importance of the Family Fund also highlight the government’s dedication to protecting families and promoting stability in society.
These decisions are crucial for the growth and development of Egypt, and they support the well-being and rights of all its citizens, particularly women. By implementing these decisions, Egypt will move towards a more equal and just society, and women will have the opportunity to contribute to the country’s progress and success.
