Al Najjar: Denying Women’s
Rights is Unacceptable

The president of Awal Women’s Society Latifa Al Najjar condemned denying women their human rights on the pretext of social habits and social norms, calling for a unified position against this. This came in a joint activity between the Bahrain Young Ladies’ Association and Awal Society during the commemoration of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on 25 November, with the participation of members from both societies and a number of figures concerned with women’s issues. Al Najjar called upon officials to put into place fair legislations and introduce laws that protect women’s rights and promote equality in all political, social, cultural, economic and civil fields.
