Meet Loujain al-Hathloul, 29, who has sought the right to drive for Saudi women. For this, she is now imprisoned and has been tortured and waterboarded. US officials have been silent. I think she's a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize. MBS, let her go!
Loujain al-Hathloul had peacefully and persistently campaigned for years to allow women the right to drive, writes . Now she is being tortured in a Saudi prison.
Yet another reason why we must use our leverage to push for human rights change in Saudi Arabia, and not pretend everything is normal: She Wanted to Drive, So Saudi Arabia’s Ruler Imprisoned and Tortured Her
Read this piece from about Saudi human rights activist Loujain al-Hathloul, who has been detained and tortured by the Saudi regime. The U.S. must push for rights activists to be freed and the regime held accountable.
In Opinion writes, "Remember this name: Loujain al-Hathloul. She is 29 years old and a courageous advocate for gender equality — so she is in a Saudi Arabian prison, and reportedly our Saudi allies have tortured her, even waterboarded her."
Why is this Saudi women's rights activist imprisoned & tortured for demanding permission to drive even though the Saudi crown prince then allowed women to drive? Because he wants driving to be a royally granted privilege not a right of women:

Trump is right that Saudi Arabia is an important ally. That’s why it’s important that it have a decent, modernizing leader, rather than one who tortures outspoken women, writes .
The U.S. has enormous leverage over Saudi Arabia, because it depends on us for its security. can’t find any indication that any official in the Trump administration has even publicly mentioned Hathloul’s name or called for her release.
i hope ppl in white house & around the world read this by & demand #SaudiArabia release #Loujain & all the others held merely for exercising right to protest
. thinks Loujain al-Hathloul should be considered for the Nobel Peace Prize this year and we agree with him after all the ordeals she has suffered in the last year and is still suffering

Great piece by - Remember this name: Loujain al-Hathloul. She is 29 years old and a courageous advocate for gender equality so she is in a Saudi Arabian prison, and reportedly our Saudi allies have tortured her, even waterboarded her.
I second this nomination.
Meet Loujain, a woman whom Saudi Arabia has imprisoned, waterboarded, tortured, assaulted--because she champions women's rights. I suggest her for the Nobel Peace Prize. Trump admin officials refuse to help, but we can spread the message: #FreeLoujain
Dear , go ahead and perform in Saudi Arabia. But on stage, call for the release of women political prisoners--women like Loujain, who's been brutally tortured for seeking basic rights for women. And ask to meet Loujain in prison. #FreeLoujain
Feminists imprisoned and tortured in Saudi Arabia. Excellent column by . I wish , who praised MBS as modernizer, would write one too!
A healthy reminder that US foreign policy is pure realpolitik and has fuck all to do with human rights and democracy
