Women's rights defenders in Saudi Arabia
MPphoto
 

  Soraya Post, on behalf of the S&D Group. – Mr President, to the Saudi authorities: shame on you. You arrest and torture women just because they defend their human rights. How come you don’t look at women as human beings? We women across the world request that you release these women immediately. The male guardianship system has to be abolished and all forms of gender-based violence, including genital mutilation, marital rape, sexual assault and harassment, has to be criminalised. Stop this cruelty to human beings. We look forward to positive changes and actions. We know that you can do better.
