Bahrain Women Association (BWA) organizes the 5th workshop “Woman Staying Home”

Bahrain Women Association organized the fifth training workshop on the concept (stay in your houses) on July 3, 2012. The targeted groups were selected specifically for the workshop which aims to: assess the perception of community regarding the prevailing common understanding about women staying at home; demonstrates the implication of such common understanding on the community; studying the historical background of verse “stay in your houses”, as well as to review the experiences of successful women leading change away from the traditions that imprisoned them at the home and restricted their role in feminist perspectives.

The workshop concluded that, despite the absence of calls on community to “stay in your houses”, as no form of discussions clearly declares such need, yet in reality it strongly exercised driven by the community’s subconscious, and practiced without saying in many situations which deprives women opportunity to participate in various community initiatives.
