In one of the most glaring example of complaints from women of Saudi Arabia, a group of women has openly rebelled against activities that are banned for them in the authoritarian kingdom.
The music video released on YouTube is called Hwages, which means “concerns”, lambasts the oppression of Saudi women. In the video, three veiled women can be seen having fun together as they do roller-skating, driving, playing basketball and riding in bumpercars.
The video created by artist Majed al-Esalyrics includes the line which says: “If only God would rid us of men”. Quite unthinkable in Saudi Arabia! No official word on the video has been released.
