Bahrain

Women rights activists are about to launch an aggressive campaign in support of the proposed Family Law that has faced rejection from religious scholars because it lacks the Shari'a laws.
The campaign, which was launched in July, is being held under the slogan My Nationality is My Right and that of My Children and is part of a regional push.
A human rights activist has called for the enactment of distinct family status laws for Bahrain's various religious groups.
In June 2005 WLUML circulated an alert for action to support women’s rights campaigner Ms. Ghada Jamsheer who faced three trials for publicly criticizing family court judges and, if convicted, faced up to 15 years in prison.
