Abolish Article 153
Abolish Article 153 is an organization campaigning to abolish article 153 from Kuwait’s penal code, which effectively gives men regulatory, judicial and executive power over their female kin in blatant disregard of the constitution, international agreements on human and women’s rights, and even the Islamic Sharia.
Ultimately the goal of Abolish Article 153 is to create a safe environment where mothers, daughters, sisters, and wives are protected from all forms of violence, to raise awareness of these violent practices and the legislation that sanctions them, and to ensure the creation of safe houses for women under threat of violence.
