Two Women Activists Seek Jail Term Reversal

Sebastian Usher reports for BBC News:

Two women’s rights activists in Saudi Arabia have called on their government to overturn their 10-month jail terms for inciting a woman to defy her husband’s authority.

Wajeha al-Huwaider and Fawzia al-Oyouni are both well-known activists.

An appeal by the two women is due to be heard later this week.
