Saudi Woman Faces Threats of Execution for Going Out to Breakfast Without Fully Covering Herself

Earlier this week, a photographer posted a picture on Twitter of a woman going to eat breakfast. She was dressed fashionably, with a long jacket, long skirt, and sunglasses.

The problem is that this was Saudi Arabia, and she wasn’t covering her face and hair.

Now people are calling for her death.

“So many people retweeted it and what she did reached extremists, so she got threats,” said the person who posted the image.

“She deleted her tweets but they didn’t stop, so she deleted her account.”

A hashtag which translates into English as “we demand the imprisonment of the rebel Angel Al Shehri” subsequently went viral. One user wrote “we propose blood”, while another demanded a “harsh punishment for the heinous situation”.

There are plenty of people defending her, thankfully, but you won’t find this notion that execution is a legitimate response to whatever-her-“crime”-is outside of theocracies.
