The lives of women in Saudi Arabia have always been the subject of much fascination and outrage in the West.

Even if the police can’t do much, my family is too scared of the scandal it would create to test me.
But I am ‘careful’ about not giving my father a reason to punish me or take away my job, which to me is the only thing worth living for.” — “I cannot go out by myself because my father, who is my guardian, won’t let me.
