BEYOND TROUSERS, The Public Order Regime and the Human Rights of Women and Girls in Sudan

Mapping the experiences of women with the application of the public order laws, police and courts in Sudan, Beyond Trousers reveals the public order regime to promote a derogative concept of women and prevent them from executing their economic, political and human rights. An analysis within the legal and religious context reflects how the POR undermines Sudan’s capacity to fulfill its obligations under the African Charter and in Human Rights perspectives, mainly for women. Recommendations to policymakers ask for repeal and reform of the POR for its negative impacts on the culture in Sudan.
