Report to The Committee On The Elimination Of All Forms Of Discrinination Against Women
On the occasion of the review of Bahrain‘s Third Periodic Report at the Committee’s pre-sessional working group, July 2013
Submitted by The Bahrain Centre for Human Rights (BCHR) with the support of FIDH
In cooperation with Caram Asia and with the support of FIDH, BCHR submitted an alternative report to the Committee in 2008. This report focused on the situation of women migrant domestic workers in Bahrain. It was then decided to tackle specifically this issue as there were specific concerns on an issue which was at this time not specifically addressed.
Since February 2011, the violent repression against the protest movement in Bahrain led to human rights violations that affected, and even specifically targeted, women’s rights.
This report will examine the implementation of key observations made by the CEDAW Committee in 2008 and highlight the consequences of the current crisis in Bahrain on the fundamental rights and freedoms of women.
