Exhibition Abolish 153 marking ten years since women obtained their political rights in Kuwait. This campaign is committed to abolishing article 153 of Kuwait’s penal code that sanctifies the murder of female kin, and treats it as a misdemeanor punishable by a maximum sentence of 3 years or 3000 rupees fine. Many Kuwaitis are not aware of this law’s existence, it is harmful to women and girls as it sanctifies their murder, and violates the constitution, Islamic Sharia and CEDAW, which Kuwait ratified in 1996.
The exhibition will include works by 15 artists: Alaa Al-Haddad, Amani Althuwaini, Amira Behbehani, Ibrahim Alatiya, Khadija Al-Bahaweed, Mohammed Ramadan, Mohammed Sarkouh, Shaimaa Ashkanani, Suhaila Al-Najdi, Thuraya Al-Baqsami, Maryam Mesri, Nasser Al-Ghanim, Salar Ahmadian, Behnaz Ghasemi and Katya Traboulsi.
