Teenagers launch sex change bid
Two teenage women planning to undergo sex change operations are set to launch legal bids for recognition of their status as men.
Fowzia Janahi, the only lawyer in Arab world who specialises in transsexual cases, said the Bahrainis, aged 18 and 19, had approached her seeking help.
"They are suffering from gender identity problem and wanted legal help," she said.
"I have asked them to get a medical report stating their health condition."
Ms Janahi said without having seen proper medical reports it was too early to discuss the nature of their cases.
"All I can say at the moment is the families of the two young girls are aware of their condition and are supportive," said the lawyer, who became the first in the Arab world to win two sex change cases.
Ms Janahi said she would take her time to review all aspects of the cases, which required to be backed up with medical reports stating the teenagers did not have female reproductive organs and were suffering from gender identity disorder (GID).
"It takes at least two years to study a case and then file it in court," she said.
"This way it ensures only serious cases are dealt with of people who cannot lead normal lives.
"Such cases take years until the authorities finally change the gender in CPRs and passport."
The lawyer won her first sex change case in 2005 after courts ruled that her client could be officially declared a man.
She won a second case in 2008 involving Bahraini Hussain Rabie (formerly known as Zainab Abdulhafed Rabie), who underwent sex change operation in Thailand.
Her client was officially recognised as a man by the High Civil Court after a three-year battle in which it was proved instead of having a female pattern of chromosome he had a different kind produced only in men.
After that success, Ms Janahi said she was flooded with calls from people across Gulf who complained of being trapped in the wrong body.
"They are all scared to take any step fearing public ridicule and want to legally change their sex from male to female or vice-versa," she said.
"Families have started to actually understand that this problem exists in society.
"But we need to create more awareness of GID cases to deal with the problem."
Ms Janahi has won praise in several blogs and websites as a key player fighting for the rights of transsexuals in the Middle East.
"It feels good that there is someone to fight for the rights of transsexuals," she said.
"There is a lot of criticism and rejections out there but one needs to stand above all this."
