Risking Their Lives, Saudi Women Fight for Emancipation


Risking Their Lives, Saudi Women Fight for Emancipation

CDHR Commentary: Long before Prince Mohammed and his father inherited the throne in 2015, many Saudi women have been challenging and combating extremists, misogynists, defying the immobilizing driving ban, demanding an end to child marriage, highlighting violence against women and campaigning for the reinterpretation of the arbitrary Shariah law. They have been in the forefront of the fight against the root causes of male chauvinism, extremism and terrorism at a high personal, political, social, economic and religious cost. Prince Mohammed and his father saw women’s bravery to attain their citizenship rights as a threatening challenge that can be emulated by other segments in Saudi society, thus a threat to the authorities’ birthright entitlement to absolute domination and eternal rule.
