Rebel : my escape from Saudi Arabia to freedom [eAudioBook]

Mohammed, Rahaf2022
In January 2019, then 18-year-old Saudi woman Rahaf Mohammed escaped from her family while holidaying in Kuwait. She was fleeing systematic abuse of her human rights as a woman growing up in Saudi Arabia and, specifically, her family?s threats to kill her because she desired the freedoms Western women take for granted. She boarded a plane bound for Bangkok, en route to Australia where she intended to seek asylum. On her arrival the Thai authorities detained Mohammed with the aim of returning her to her family. Knowing this would mean her death, Mohammed barricaded herself in an airport hotel room and appealed for help through social media - capturing the attention of government leaders, human rights advocates and media around the world. Rebel is a passionate story by a woman who refused to allow a system to define who she was and what she could be. It shines a light on the rampant and dangerous inequalities that persist in Saudi society, and inspires women everywhere to dream of a better future for themselves and their daughters.
