A case study was carried out in 11 countries – Brazil, Egypt, India, Iran, Jordan, Lebanon, the United States of America and the United States – Morocco, Nigeria, Palestine, Senegal and Turkey – on discriminatory laws against women in the family. The case studies will provide a basis for comparative analysis and a roadmap for developing and expanding the campaign. In Brazil, the study was carried out by CEPIA researchers and involved extensive data collection, as well as interviews with key actors, including lawyers, public managers and activists. A seminar was held bringing together an expressive group of jurists, activists and public managers where the research data was presented and mapped action strategies.
