Saudi Women Defiant
|June 29, 2012|
In the following clip, a young Saudi woman is harassed by the religious police at a local Saudi Arabian Mall. The man tells her to leave the mall because she is wearing nail polish and lipstick, but she refuses to leave and calls the police to help her. It is illegal she says, for the religious police to harass citizens in public places; they are only permitted to advise others in a gentle and respectful tone. The woman in the video informs the religious police that she is recording them, but they are not deterred.
The woman posted the film on Youtube asking the head of the religious police to take action against this man. During the confrontation, the woman said" I'm a free woman, I do what I want ...mind your own business...I will not leave, so stop following me."
