NSHR to Increase Women Membership

A Saudi human rights watchdog is planning to boost the number of women members in line with the breakthrough appointment of 30 women to the country’s Shura Council.

“We have plans to increase the number of women adherents and to set up new branches to handle grievances related to the status of women that are still pending at the main office,” Meflah Al Qahtani, the head of the National Society for Human Rights (NSHR), said.
