Saudi Women Drivers appeal

Women activists in Saudi Arabia who fought for the right to drive face 20 years in prison. Reports suggest they have been tortured and abused in detention.After years of campaigning, the ban on driving for women in Saudi Arabia has been lifted. But in a cruel twist, the women who bravely fought for this right have been arrested and branded ‘terrorists’.

Some of these women have been provisionally released, showing the authorities are listening.  We want you to join us in demanding that the remaining women are immediately freed, and all charges are dropped.

To take action all you need to do is: TEXT: WOMEN + your NAME to 70505

By texting this number, you will have joined us in writing to the Saudi Embassy making these demands.

Please note Amnesty International will also call you about ways to support their work, including fundraising. Text NOCALL to 70505 to opt out. See
