Kuwait CSW Submission 2018

Kuwait - Submission to the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW)

30th July 2018

The submission details the need for the Government of Kuwait to repeal Article 182 of its Penal Code, which exempts rapists from punishment, stating that if a perpetrator of rape legally marries the victim with the permission of the victim’s guardian, and the guardian requests that the perpetrator not be punished, then the perpetrator will live with impunity.

Submitted by: Equality Now and Abolish Article 153.
