Almotamar.net - Vice Chairwomen of the Yemeni Women National Committee Houriyah Mashour is to lead the Yemeni woman delegation to meetings of the session 41 of the UN Woman Committee to be held in New York in the period of 30 June to 18 July 2008. The Yemeni women delegation is to present and discuss the 5th national report on the level of implementing the agreement on ending all forms of discrimination against the woman so as to measure progress and improvement at the level of the woman development in all fields.
Yemen had presented the 4th and the 5th reports to the committee of the agreement in August 2003. During the past four years since that date many changes have taken place such as the approval of legal texts in the laws of personal status and nationality, labour and civil service, civil record, all of which contributed to removal of discrimination against the woman.
A press statement by the Yemeni Women National Committee obtained by the almotamar.net, however, mentioned that despite of that there still real challenges facing a qualitative improvement of the woman situations.
