Over the past few months, some women and women’s rights activists in Saudi Arabia have tried to take to the streets without conventional Islamic coverage. These women also shared images of themselves on social media.
AFP released images and an interview of a five-year-old Saudi woman on Thursday, September 21, who says she has been in the streets of Riyadh, the capital, for four months without a veil. “No one can force him to do what he does not want,” he told AFP.
The agency also mentions another 5-year-old woman who specializes in “human resources” who says she has abandoned Islamic clothing in other public spaces in Riyadh except at her workplace. He attended a shopping mall in Riyadh last week without a traditional Islamic veil in Saudi Arabia.
