    Laws in 27 countries worldwide prevent mothers from passing their nationality to their children on an equal basis with fathers in contraction with international law. More than 60 countries deny women equal right to confer nationality to non-national spouses. This discrimination results in significant human rights violations and unnecessary suffering for individuals and families.

    The Women's Refugee Commission coordinates the Global Campaign for Equal Nationality Rights, to eliminate gender discrimination in nationality laws.
