Gabon will present three bills to parliament to strengthen equality between men and women, notably by fighting against “violence” and “discrimination”, the country’s Prime Minister told the AFP news agency on Friday. Africa News reports that one of the texts introduces divorce by mutual consent with adultery, committed by either the man or the woman, an acceptable reason for separation. Previously this could only be invoked by the man. The other two bills aim to amend the criminal code and the civil code, which still enshrines the pre-eminence of the man in the couple by making the husband the sole head of the family.
