Double Yellow Lines
After years of campaigning, the ban on driving for women in Saudi Arabia has been lifted. But the women who bravely fought for this right face 20 years in prison and have been branded ‘traitors’. Reports suggest that they have been tortured and abused in detention.
This is only a part of the ongoing issues surrounding women’s rights in Saudi Arabia. Although the ban has now been lifted women with licences still need permission from a man to drive, and cannot buy a car themselves as they are unable to open a bank account.
It is hard for us to imagine such restrictive
conditions as UK citizens.
Visit the Amnesty Intentional Website in order to email the Saudi embassy demanding for the women to be returned home.
