ماجد العيسى - هواجيس | Majedalesa - Hwages

Saudi Arabia was outraged by this video. A country where women are second class citizens only allowed out if accompanied by a male guardian and are forbidden to drive. One man campaigning for the abolition of the guardian laws was imprisoned for a year and fined £1,000.

Saudi fundamentalist clerics argue that the abolition of guardianship and allowing women to drive would encourage women to be immoral.

It is Saudi Arabia's presence on the United Nations Human Rights commission that is immoral and their laws oppressing women a blasphemy against human rights.

That is what should outrage.


  1. Would you have any idea how to get in contact with this band. I am curating an Art show for international Woman's day and would love to have them there live streamed. Any ideas?

    1. The only thing I can suggest is trying to contact them via the You Tube channel that I got this video from. Sorry I can't help further and apologies for not replying sooner.
