Country Reports on Human Rights Practices, Kuwait - 2001 (Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor of U.S. Department of State): "Citizens do not have the right to change their Government ... Women are denied the right to vote (see Section 3). Their testimony is not given equal weight to that of men in the family courts (see Section 1.e.). Married women require their husbands' permission to obtain a passport (see Section 2.d.). By law only men are able to confer citizenship; therefore, children born to citizen mothers and stateless fathers are themselves stateless."
