Bahrain’s Parliament has asked the kingdom’s five councils for feedback on whether to increase advertising censorship in the country, Gulf Daily News has reported. The Central Municipal Council was the first to approve the proposed crackdown on “sexy” advertising. “Most advertisements focus on the feminine side and use women as a commodity to promote a product, which is a clear violation of women’s rights and makes them look bad,” said the council’s public utilities and environment affairs committee chairman, Ahmed Al Ansari. “Women have a bigger role in society, but unfortunately they are being used and things have to be corrected – especially in relation to advertisements whether on TV, the road or social media.” The Supreme Council for Women is also expected to be contacted by lawmakers for feedback on the issue, said the report.
