Women’s Political Independence In Kuwait May Be Reached On July 4th

The Constitutional Court of Kuwait will decide on July 4th if Article I of the 1962 election law, which denies political rights to women, violates several articles of the constitution that guarantee equal rights to men and women. If the five-judge court finds Article I unconstitutional, Kuwaiti women will finally gain the right to vote and hold office.
