TRAPPED

Under Saudi Arabia’s guardianship system, every woman must have a male guardian – a father, brother, husband, or even a son – who has the authority to make a range of critical decisions on her behalf. Women are required to receive guardian approval to apply for a passport, travel outside the country, study abroad on a government scholarship, get married, get divorced, conduct official business, undergo certain medical procedures and even exit prison.
