Free Nawaf al-Rasheed - Voice Project
Al-Rasheed’s arrest comes amidst a recent crackdown on freedom of expression inside Saudi Arabia as well as increased targeting of Qatari citizens and fabrication of charges against them. In all circumstances, recent analyses of Saudi Interior Ministry information show that arbitrary detentions of longer than six months without court proceedings or contact with family and lawyers have become the norm.

A plague of Twitter bots is roiling the Middle East - The Washington Post, June 2, 2018

Middle East Centre – Tribal Social Evolution and Gender: Conflict in Urbanized Tribal Units, July 13, 2018
She tweeted about her poem in reaction to the forced divorce of a tribal woman – Salma – from her husband of thirteen years and father of her five children as he was of non-tribal background, and thus an unfit match by tribal standards. Other evidence of the difficulty tribal mores can cause women, in particular in a modern urban setting, are plentiful.

Haya al Mughni has pointed out such difficulties are also pervasive in established urban tribes as well as the more recently settled bedouin population. She describes how the merchant class and elite Kuwaitis control women through arranged marriages and through placing a disproportionate amount of responsibility on these women for the preservation of family honour: “those of the elite and the merchant class have been the most eager to preserve the kin relations from which they gain prestige and access to many privileges. Their loyalty to their own class has often superseded their loyalty to members of their own sex”, up to and including issues surrounding their right to marry and bear children if a socio-economically suitable match was not available to them.
