Bahrain has taken pioneering steps in the advancement of women and the development of their capabilities and the activation of their participation in society. This was confirmed by statistical results that showed the extent of development similar to Bahraini women in various sectors of education, health, economic, social and political. Perhaps the most enhanced process of action for the advancement of women in the Kingdom of Bahrain is the harmony between public and private efforts, which in turn contributed to bring about changes in conditions and advancement of Bahraini women.
