Kayan published one brochure on the "Rights of Victims of Crimes" law of 2001. The brochure explains to Arab women the content of the law and their rights under the law. The victim must be informed about the criminal procedure. He or she may attend court meetings and even closed sessions, and has the right to be heard in court before decisions regarding Postponement or delay.
This poster contains the first publication of the text of the "Law for the Prevention of Sexual Harassment" in Arabic. The "Law for the Prevention of Sexual Harassment" (1998) defines sexual harassment and regulates the punishment both in civil and criminal court. The law obliges every workplace with more than 25 employees to give itself a constitution against sexual harassment and to ensure that the employees are familiar with it. Under the law, every workplace also has the duty to appoint one person in charge of sexual harassment cases to whom complaints can be addressed.
The brochure explains to Arab women the content of the law, their rights and duties, and methods of enforcing the law. In the Arab society, speaking out against sexual harassment is still an unusual and brave act, in the workplace and beyond. Often, women are not sure whether they actually experienced sexual harassment, or are utterly unaware of the fact that they were subjected to sexual harassment.
On International Women`s Day in March 2007, Kayan published excerpts of the" Prevention of Domestic Violence Act "of 1991 in Arabic and distributed 2000 leaflets to Arab women in social welfare offices, universities, schools, and other public places. This is the first publication of the legislation in Arabic. Due to the lack of any information on the issue in Arabic, Kayan saw the need to produce this publication in order to inform Arab women about their legal rights against domestic violence in their own language. The "Prevention of Domestic Violence Act" is designed to offer fast and unintrusive assistance to women in emergencies. Women can apply to family courts for protective orders on their own, without the need to consult a lawyer first.
