What is Hidden

Mohamed Hemish says the latest Saudi campaign on domestic violence ignores the fact in Saudi Arabia the problem goes far deeper than just a social issue because there are no laws in the country that regards violence against women as an illegal activity:

The ad in the new campaign is meant to define domestic violence in Saudi Arabia as being a social issue and divert attention from the government’s lack of laws that protect women. This campaign takes the responsibility away from the government and puts it in the hands of individuals themselves; women have to step up and talk about abuse and go to shelters, and men have to restrain themselves from abusing women.
