Bahrain

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.
The conference, held in Manama, Bahrain, was the first to bring together human rights activists from all GCC countries and Yemen to discuss violence and discrimination against women.
