In the Arab world, Tunisia is an exception in terms of the advancement of women and gender equality. Indeed, our country mixes in this very critical social field, a voluntarist policy that some describe as "state feminism" and this, since 1956, date of promulgation of the first Personal Status Code, very favorable to women and to gender parity (Deneuil, 2006). This policy is based on avant-garde legislation, renewed and corrected for 50 years in view of the evolution of Tunisian society (Credif, 2009), but also on encouraging the education of young girls, to the point that the girls' current university enrollment rate exceeds that of boys (62% of all students, in September 2016).
The accession of Tunisia - since the 1990s - to international conventions and the amendment of the Labor Code (1992) also contributed to the adoption (at least in the texts) of the principle of non-discrimination "Man / Woman In the world of work, for both the public and private sectors (Ben Hassine, 2007).
The creation of the Ministry of Women (1992) and a Center for Research and Information on Women, Crédif (1993), with an Observatory on the Status of Women, will provide Tunisia with official structures (therefore supported by the State), intended to ensure women a better participation in economic and social life, within the framework of parity (Ben Hassine, 2007).
