Bahrain: Women & Domestic Violence

From Gulf Daily News:
A NETWORK of prominent Bahraini men is hoping to introduce legislation to specifically protect women from domestic violence.

If passed, the bill would cover the penalties associated with violence against women in the home, workplace and in public.

The law could include a clause making it mandatory for television programmes and films that show violence against women to appear with an advisory about the penalties associated with such acts.

Extremely violent films or programmes could also be censored or banned under the new bill.
