Abolish 153

AlAnoud is a founding member, and currently serves as co-director of Abolish 153, the campaign to end honor killing legislation in Kuwait and the GCC. 

This campaign aims to abolish article 153 from Kuwait’s penal code – which gives men regulatory, judicial and executive power over their female kin in blatant disregard of the constitution, international agreements on human and women’s rights and even Islamic Sharia. In the absence of shelters and survivor resources Abolish 153 has become integral in highlighting issues of gender-based violnce, and providing moral and financial aid for victims of abuse.
