Bahrain

Women's Petition Committee members have condemned a series of cases filed against their leader Ghada Jamsheer for allegedly defaming three Sharia judges.
The Bahrain Centre for Human Rights (BCHR) is concerned about three criminal charges made against women's rights campaigner Ms. Ghada Yusuf Jamsheer, accusing her of foul language, abusing a shari'ah family court and a former shari'a judge.
Doctors could soon be obliged to record all female patients who report to hospitals and clinics showing signs of abuse.
For the first time in the Arab world, a woman has chaired a parliamentary session in the Gulf state of Bahrain.
