- The Basic Law of the State (101/96):
This law does not discriminate between males and females regarding social rights and obligations, nor occupations and public office. Social equality is the foundation upon which all Omani legislation asserts equal opportunities to citizens despite their gender. Article (17), for instance, empowers women of Oman with absolute and complete rights and duties in society. This law aims to assist the Omani community in letting go of old, damaging socio-cultural beliefs, notably those that discriminate against women. This equality/equity classification assures that both men and women in Oman have equal access to education, healthcare, security, work, marriage, inheritance, and inheritance. Acceptable religious, as well as societal principles, ensure all declared rights.
