Saudi activist and scholar Hala Aldosari will discuss the status of women’s rights advocacy in Saudi Arabia, drawing lessons for feminists who choose to tread an uncharted, less traveled road. In this talk, Aldosari will draw personal insights and reflections from women’s rights campaigns and the ongoing journey to organize thought and action in a country where activism continues to be criminalized.
