#110 Fighting for Freedom: Lina Al-Hathloul Speaks About Her Sister Loujain’s Imprisonment
FiLiA speaks with Lina Al-Hathloul, the sister of Loujain Al-Hathloul, a women's rights campaigner from Saudi Arabia who has been imprisoned in Saudi Arabia as punishment for her campaigning for women's rights. Loujain's campaigning work for women’s civil rights includes advocating for an end to the male guardianship system, for women’s right to drive, for women’s right to political representation and participation, and for the creation of a women’s shelter for victims of domestic violence. Lina has become one of the few family members able and willing to speak out on behalf of an incarcerated relative. She has become a tireless advocate for her sister Loujain and continues to bring to light the widespread mistreatment and torture of prisoners such as her sister at the hands of the Saudi government.
