Bahrain: Women to get equal nationality rights
Last month, Bahrain endorsed a law giving families of Bahraini mothers and foreign fathers equal treatments in terms of government fees and services, especially health and education.
This law ends years of struggle by those families, especially in issuing residence permits for husbands and children.
The move comes as part of Bahrain’s dedication to remove all observations on CEDAW to improve its image as a supporter of gender equality by empowering female citizens.
