Bahraini men inspire Lebanese to curb violence against women

Filed on December 13, 2010

MANAMA — Bahraini men who espouse the rights of women have become inspirations for their counterparts in Lebanon. Members of the ‘Bahrain Network of Men to End Violence Against Women’ were present when a similar body was launched last week in Lebanon.

Their participation in such an event was part the global campaign linking the ‘World Day to End Violence Against Women’, as well as to mark the World Human Rights Day.

Members of upper house Dr Salah Ali and Ebrahim Bashmi, who are also members of the Bahraini Network of Men to End Violence Against Women, attended the launch of the Lebanese men’s forum, which will be working for the same cause — ending violence against women — making it the second network of the kind in Arab countries after the Bahraini men’s network.

The event was held at the UNESCO Palace in Beirut under the auspices of Prime Minister Saad Al Hariri.

The Bahraini network was launched on July 15, 2009 with support from the United Nations. The network has members from the government, legislative authority, media, private sector and academia. —
