Interesting take, Jonathan Swift. From amnesty.org : “Women continued to be denied full rights in law and in practice. Under the UPR process in January, Oman rejected recommendations to withdraw its remaining reservations to CEDAW, including those granting women equal rights with men in matters relating to the nationality of children, marriage, divorce and other family matters. It also rejected the recommendations to criminalize marital rape.

Furthermore, in the World Bank’s Women, Business and the Law index for 2021, which ranks women’s economic opportunities, Oman ranked lower than the regional average, scoring 35.5 out of 100. It noted that women in Oman were especially disadvantaged in terms of mobility, parenthood and marriage.”
