Note that CEDAW is still in phase of review and pending status in Tunisia since ennahdha the fondamentalist party is in power. We are witnessing under age marriages of girls 14 years old.
A real focus in the Code of statute of women is Tunisia is in force since 1956 where polygamy is banned.
Thank you
