#undress522 - Abaad Resource Center for gender equality, Lebanon

Lebanon is one of only 10 countries in the world that allows a rapist to be exonerated if he marries his victim, under Article 522 of the Lebanese Penal Code. The campaign was launched with a bride in her 522 Dress, asking people to Undress 522 on national OOH networks.

The campaign pushed the Parliamentary Committee to meet and discuss Article 522 the following month during which they staged a protest outside Parliament led by 13 rape victims, wearing Dress 522.

The Committee unanimously voted to abolish Article 522 and forces Parliament to ratify the change.
