Saudi girls are generally forced to marry guys they don't even know... men who could chronologically be their fathers, even their grandfathers. Such dysfunctional marriages often lead to domestic violence and honor killings, "traditions" completely accepted by the Saudi community. Many women can't bear this situation, and commit suicide early in their lives. If this weren't enough, men are legally allowed to perform polygamy, while women are stoned to death if they are even suspected of adultery. The Saudi regime justifies these policies by stating that they exist for the protection of the Saudi women. I call it a planned and systematic annihilation of every basic freedom of the Saudi female population.
In an article I wrote last October, I advocated for more involvement from the social media community in support of the women in Saudi Arabia.
I do believe that if more people around the world wrote social media blogs
about their condition, the international community would intensify the pressure on the Saudi government to start doing something about it. If more individuals across the globe utilized their social media network strategies
and joined a social media campaign
, maybe the new generation of Saudi rulers will be inspired to facilitate much needed socio-political reforms. The power of digital literacy
and communication without borders
is unlimited, so instead of wasting it in futile activities, why not using it to help others?
